The NFL Foundation has donated $3.4 million to relief efforts for the COVID-19 pandemic, the league announced Thursday.

That gift brought the NFL's donation total—including the NFL Players Association, teams, owners and players—to more than $35 million overall.

"We have all been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic," NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement. "Now more than ever, we need to unify to stay home and stay strong. The NFL will continue to find ways to give our support so we can get through this time of uncertainty together."

The money is being split between the American Red Cross, Bob Woodruff Foundation, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, CDC Foundation, GENYOUth Foundation, Meals on Wheels America, Salvation Army, Team Rubicon, United Way and Wounded Warrior Project.

According to CNN, at least 80,837 people have the coronavirus in the United States.
