The Bills Mafia has come through again, this time donating more than $360,000 to the Blessings in a Backpack charity in honor of Lamar Jackson.  

The generosity comes after the Buffalo Bills defeated Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens 17-3 in the AFC divisional round. Jackson left the game in the third quarter after suffering a concussion

Several Bills fans determined they should pay it forward by honoring a charity Jackson has supported:

Jackson responded to the donations from Bills fans on his Twitter account Monday evening:

It has become a tradition for Buffalo fans to donate in support of various players, including notably Andy Dalton after he helped the Bills reach the playoffs in 2018.

Blessings in a Backpack works to provide meals to kids who are often reliant on food from school. The organization gives food to them on the weekends, with $130 providing meals for one student throughout a 38-week school year.

The 11,000-plus donations from Bills fans will certainly help a lot of children in need.

Jackson had worked with the Louisville chapter of the organization since he was in college, donating $25,000 made from autographs in 2018.
