LOCAL FOOTBALL STARS AID IN FIGHT AGAINST COVID19, DONATE MEDICAL SUPPLIES TO FAMILY MEDICINE PRACTICE
Moncks Corner, SC, May 22, 2020 - As the battle against the coronavirus wears on, two local football stars aid in the fight. Cousins, Andre and Bruce Ellington, donated n95 respiratory masks and provided lunch to the staff of Berkeley Family Practice, LLC. Andre along with other family members delivered the donation personally while Bruce joined in from FaceTime. Their donation and their time was well-received with praises and gratitude from the medical staff who continue to provide comprehensive primary care services to our community while balancing COVID19 threats.

Both went on to be drafted in the NFL and are currently free agents. The pair have a long history of giving back to their community including through their partnership, Ellington Elite Youth Football Camp.
