Makikiisa si Philadelphia 76ers star Ben Simmons sa pagtulong sa mga apektado ng coronavirus pandemic sa lugar sa pamamagitan ng “The Philly Pledge.”

Hinihikayat ni Simmons ang mga taga-Philadelphia na mag-donate sa city’s COVID-19 relief fund at Philabundance.

“Philly! You don’t have to stand on the sidelines, use @ThePhillyPledge to find local nonprofit organizations who are doing amazing work in Philadelphia to help our less fortunate. We ARE the City of Brotherly Love. #ThePhillyPledge Visit for more info. Anyone who would like to donate can do so by going to or,” tweet ng National Basketball Association (NBA) player.

Pinuri naman ni Mayor Jim Kenney ang mensahe ni Simmons para sa mga taga-Philadelphia.

“At a time like this, it’s important and inspiring to see our city come together and for celebrities such as Ben to use their platforms to deliver a message of unity and generosity toward each other,” saad ni Kenney. Collectively, Ben and these individual institutions and donors are making a simple statement.”

Dinugtong pa ng alklade, “We are all Philadelphians and we need to do what is best for the residents of our city. Ben said it best himself and I quote, ‘As a city, we always band together and no matter how far away we move in this world, Philadelphia is always our home. Through thick and thin, wins and losses, championships and busts, we always come together in a time of need and we leave no one behind.’”
