Several prominent athletes have made generous donations to their communities in the wake of the coronavirus.

Houston Texans star J.J. Watt and his wife, Kealia Ohai, joined the list on Sunday. The prominent couple has made a big donation to the Houston Food Bank.

Watt and Ohai, who plays for the Chicago Red Stars of the National Women's Soccer League, have donated $350,000 to the Houston Food Bank.

ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter shared the cool news on Twitter on Sunday afternoon.

Well done, JJ and Kealia. The happy couple is just a couple of weeks removed from their wedding. Watt and Ohai were married in the Bahamas in February.

Watt and Ohai join the likes of Stephen and Ayesha Curry, Blake Griffin, Kevin Love and Giannis Antetokounmpo, among others, who have donated to their communities during a time of need.
