Dallas Mavericks guard Seth Curry is supporting first responders in Dallas amid the coronavirus pandemic, providing 115 meals for them, according to the team's community relations department:

It was part of a joint effort from the team's players, owner Mark Cuban, CEO Cynt Marshall, general manager and president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson and head coach Rick Carlisle. 

According to Brad Townsend of the Dallas Morning News, every Mavericks player has committed to donating meals as part of the relief effort:

A number of players, owners and coaches around sports, including the NBA, have been giving back to local communities as the coronavirus outbreak continues to affect the United States, from arena workers to first responders and beyond. It's a bit of uplifting news as states and cities continue to take measures to limit the spread of COVID-19.
