CC Sabathia played with the New York Yankees from 2009-2019 and became a fan favorite in the Bronx. He continues to spend time in the borough that is currently in one of the hardest-hit areas in the world when it comes to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The directive now is to stay inside. While Sabathia is doing that nearly all day, he has still found time to pass out boxes of food to support Boys & Girls Club members in The Bronx. The southpaw is joined by his wife Amber in handing out food weekly to those in need.
This is an amazing gesture from the Sabathia's, who are also ensuring food is passed out in CC's hometown of Vallejo, Calif. He is providing much-needed non-perishable food with the help of FreshDirect, an online grocery company based in New York.
Sabathia's playing career ended in 2019 when he threw until he literally couldn't anymore. He fought through the pain for Yankees fans and is now putting his own health at risk to ensure those in need get the food they desperately need. Hopefully his act inspires others who have the funds to help those who need it the most.
