“We want to help those in our community who are most affected by the COVID-19 crisis,” Ravens president Dick Cass said in the release. “We chose to donate through these four organizations because we are confident they will apply our funds quickly and directly to people in need.

“We have worked closely with each of these organizations, and the life-altering work being done by them is incredible. We salute their dedication and the manner in which they continue to inspire and serve so many people.”
