Good afternoon, 12s.
Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today – Tuesday, April 21 – about your Seattle Seahawks.
Jarran Reed Gives Back
Jarran Reed is continuing his career in Seattle having re-signed earlier this offseason, but while Seattle remains his professional home, his bonds to his hometown of Goldsboro, North Carolina, remain strong. With that in mind, Reed announced Tuesday that he is partnering with the United Way, Salvation Army and YMCA to provide meals for those in need during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. Reed is also supporting local business, using a local company, Justo's Grillin & Catering to provide those meals.
"I'm glad I can partner with United Way, Salvation Army and YMCA to feed the children, the families, the front-line workers and the seniors while also supporting local restaurants in Goldsboro, North Carolina," Reed said. "I also want to give a huge thanks and shout out to Justin Hall and Justo's Catering for providing the food that we're going to pass out to the community. I want to give extra thanks to the essential workers and the frontline workers that are out there very day putting their lives on the line to help fight COVID-19. Let's all stay safe together, be blessed, and fight COVID-19 together."
Reed is one of many Seahawks who is doing his part to help in these trying times. You can find many more examples in last week's Seahawks mailbag.
Social Post Of The Day
Today's social post comes from Blitz, who in addition to encouraging social distancing, announces a new TikTok account. Side note: you can add "bird encourages safe practices during a pandemic and is also joining something called TikTok" to the list of sentences I never could have imagined writing a year or two ago.
