NFL Comes Together For Draft-A-Thon To Support COVID-19 Relief

Funds directed to both local and national organizations.

A key component of this year's NFL Draft will be a special Draft-A-Thon to raise money for COVID-19 relief efforts. Fans can contribute by texting DRAFT to 21000 (standard messaging and data rates may apply) or at

Funds will go directly to organizations addressing COVID-19 relief efforts, including six national charities - American Red Cross, Feeding America, Meals on Wheels, Salvation Army, United Way and the CDC Foundation.

Locally, the Seahawks will direct donations towards United Way of King County, Salvation Army, Food Lifeline and Sound Generations - Meals on Wheels.

While fans will see calls for donations throughout the draft, donations are being accepted now. As of Wednesday morning, football fans have already contributed over $275,000.

We are all impacted by this in different ways. If you are able, no donation is too small. Every dollar counts.
