The couple donated $100,000 US each to the four of New York City's hardest-hit hospitals, E! adds, which include Elmhurst, NYU Hospital, Mount Sinai, and Northern Westchester. A source told the publication that Reynolds and Lively want "to continue encouraging people around the country to help their communities, local hospitals, and healthcare workers during this time."
Reynolds and Lively live in New York City's town of Bedford with their three daughters.
"Covid-19 has brutally impacted older adults and low-income families," Lively wrote in an Instagram post. "Ryan & I are donating $1 million to be split between @feedingamerica and @foodbankscanada. If you can give, these orgs need our help.
"Though we must be distancing ourselves to protect those who don’t have the opportunity to self-quarantine, we can stay connected," she continued. "Remember the lonely and isolated. FaceTime, Skype, make a video. Remember the love that can travel through all this. Communities are stepping up — shopping for the elderly, making lunches for children. We can all do something for one another, even if that's simply staying home."
