The Roethlisbergers and the McDonalds are helping to put food on the tables of people in the New Castle during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

On Wednesday, Ben Roethisburger and his wife Ashley teamed up with Vance McDonald and his wife Kendi along with Convoy of Hope for a food giveaway to help those in need.

Ben said, "We want to help the community. This is my wife's community, where she grew up, grew up here  in New Castle. Obviously we did one a few weeks ago in Pittsburgh at Heinz Field, so to be up here in New Castle to help the community, it's a way we can show our kids and show the next generation that it's about love and helping others. It shouldn't be about us. The more we can do, the happier we are."

Steelers.com reports that the drive-thru food giveaway saw cars lined up for over a mile and helped up to 1,500 families with more than 8,000 bags and boxes of food.

There is another Convoy of Hope distribution planned for August. That one will take place in Westmoreland County.
