Given the many problems putting food on the table during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Convoy of Hope are jointly banning and helping this Christmas season.

For the second year in a row, the Steelers and the organization are working together to support 1,000 families in Pittsburgh as part of their “Huddle for the Holidays” initiative from December 8th to 9th, the club said in a press release on Wednesday.

They will distribute resources and supplies to these families in need, including food, winter clothes, water, face masks, hand sanitizer, toys and books, which will be distributed through local partners such as the YMCA, Boys & Girls Club, Veterans Leadership Program and Action Housing.
