“Small local businesses are the heart and soul of the community. I was unfortunate to hear about the problems faced by restaurants and shopping establishments. So many of them are struggling to stay in business and continue to hope that this will all end soon, ” Aaron said in a press release.
Rogers founded the Aaron Rodgers Small Business COVID-19 Fund last month and donated $ 500,000 to help small businesses and later added more. The North Valley Community Foundation also joined Aaron’s project, contributing another $ 100,000.
Some businessmen were contacted personally by Rogers and the President of the NVCF and promised to help. Aaron shared cute shots in which entrepreneurs learn good news on his Instagram.
Aaron has previously participated in charity events and donated money, including to fight forest fires.
His fiancée, Shailene Woodley, whom Rogers proposed to last month, called Aaron “an amazing person” in a recent interview.
