Aaron Rodgers Donates One Million To California Small Businesses

By Adam Roberts – 3/2/2021

We’re a year into the COVID-19 pandemic, and while many small businesses have largely adjusted to the realities of the situation it is still a daily struggle of staying afloat. Aaron Rodgers is doing what he can to assist businesses in his home state of California.

The Green Bay Packers’ QB last week gave a million dollars to 80 small businesses near his hometown of Chico. Many of the businesses are restaurants or bars, and all have been struggling with both the virus and California’s lockdowns that greatly limit how they can operate. The hope is that the donation will cover three months of expenses at the businesses.

This is hardly the first time Rodgers has shared his wealth with those in need. He has been involved with numerous charitable organizations, including the Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer (MACC) Fund, The Enough Project, the Starkey Hearing Foundation, Legal Action of Wisconsin, and the Make-a-Wish Foundation, among others.
