“Whenever he’s not knockin’ down 3s for the Dallas Mavericks, Seth Curry is buying pizzas for healthcare workers in his city!! Thanks to his generous donation, we were able to take 50 more pizzas to feed the hardworking doctors, nurses, and staff at Parkland Hospital last night!! Hopefully, we got ourselves a few new #MFFLs AND #CRFFLs with this pizza drop, so let’s give it up for Mr. Curry, the Mavs, and everybody working to help people beat this thing!!”
Cane Rosso has a link on their website for anyone who wants to donate pizzas to hospitals, nurses, first responders, or out of work service industry employees.
