Jason Aldean Donates $200k as Coronavirus Aid to His Hometown Macon
Jason Aldean is doing his share in helping his community amid the coronavirus pandemic. This week, he made a significant donation to assist with relief efforts.
Jason Aldean knows that things are tough right now because of COVID-19. For health responders and others dealing with the crisis on the frontline, it's especially hard to get their work done with limited funds.
As a result, many celebrities have donated substantial amounts of money to their efforts. Aldean joined the charitable gang earlier this week, giving back to his hometown, Macon.
Aldean donates a substantial amount
According to a post shared on Instagram by the Navicent Health organization, the country star donated $200,000 "to assist with healthcare needs" at the hospital.
The Georgia establishment appealed to the public to follow suit and donate by going to their website. According to Good Morning America, the funds go towards attaining protective gear and testing equipment.
Georgia's current COVID-19 stats
The donation will also assist the "Feed the Fight" initiative, which works with local restaurants that have had to close down. The organization pays the restaurants to prepare meals that will feed health care personnel.
The outlet reports that the state currently has 10,566 confirmed cases and saw 371 deaths as of Thursday. President of Navicent Health Foundation, Ellen Terrell, thanked the singer for his contribution.
Aldean releases a new song
A few months ago, Aldean helped people in another way when he released a single called "Got What I Got." Less of a country tune and more of an R&B song, Aldea said he felt it was appropriate for the times.
The song is about appreciating the ones we care about. It was written by Thomas Archer, Michael Tyler, and Alex Palmer for Aldean's album, "9." One person Aldean cares about greatly is his wife, Brittany.
Celebrating another anniversary
The pair celebrated their fifth anniversary last month with a sweet celebratory Twitter post. Aldea called Brittany his queen and thanked her for "making [him] the happiest and luckiest guy in the world."
The "We Back" singer also included a gorgeous photograph of the pair standing in a boat atop the ocean. Brittany also shared a heartwarming Instagram post along with a lengthy romantic caption.
She included a photo from the pair's wedding, which took place in Cancún, Mexico, in 2015. We hope the couple had a great time on their anniversary and wish them well with what's going on.
