This is a great move by Edelman. Holocaust survivors at this point in their lives are very elderly. Even the youngest of them are old.

Given what we know about coronavirus, people in their age range at more risk than younger people.

Edelman is stepping up to make sure they get what they need during these trying times.

It’s also just the latest sign of the football world answering the call when the country needed heroes during the coronavirus pandemic.

When America needed help, football players, coaches and executives answered the bell. Edelman is the latest one to get added to the list.
