Dark times can often bring out the best in people.

Los Angeles Lakers forward Anthony Davis and New York Knicks forward Julius Randle are doing their part. The former  Wildcats and New Orleans Pelicans teammates will be making substantial donations in order to aid against the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Davis, who has sisters that work in healthcare, has teamed up with Lineage Logistics to help bring jobs to the workers of Staples Center along with a matching donation of $250,000 that will help deliver food. According to the L.A. Times, Lineage has roughly 300 jobs to fill.

Lineage has also partnered up with Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry, helping create jobs in the Bay Area for their arena workers that are also out of jobs.

As for Randle, the one-time ‘Cat is working together with his Knick teammate, Bobby Portis Jr. (former Arkansas forward), as they announced a combined donation of $180,000 in a partnership with Hello Fresh that will help bring meals to New York communities. According to the New York Post, Randle and Portis will also donate another $50,000 apiece to City Harvest, which “will altogether help feed more than 370,000 New Yorkers in need.”

“On behalf of my wife Kendra and I, we are absolutely heartbroken to see the impact COVID-19 is having around the world,” Randle wrote on social media. “We encourage you all to be safe and listen to the guidelines given by our health officials.”

Those are some cool cats and kittens if you ask me.
