Henrik Lundqvist is doing his part during the coronavirus pandemic.

The New York Rangers goaltender and his wife, Therese, will give $100,000 to the Food Bank For New York City through their foundation, he announced Wednesday.

Lundqvist said he and Therese were inspired after seeing so many people "doing so many good things for others right now."

The longtime netminder added that the food bank "always (does) a great job but now more than ever they need that extra support while they feed New Yorkers in need."

Other athletes across the sports world are also donating to causes aimed at mitigating the effects of the pandemic. PGA golfer Brooks Koepka pledged $100,000 toward COVID-19 relief efforts in Florida, while NBA players Devin Booker and Karl-Anthony Towns each committed the same amount toward supporting various non-profit organizations and increasing testing capabilities, respectively.

The Food Bank For New York City has been the area's primary hunger-relief organization since 1983.
