Rob Gronkowksi and Camille Kostek have given a generous donation to St. Joseph’s University Medical Center located in Paterson, New Jersey.

It was revealed on Monday (Mach 30) in a post to MJ Day’s Instagram account that the former NFL player and model have donated 10,000 KN95 masks to the hospital amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“What Camille and Rob have done for this hospital, the caregivers, the patients, and the community made me cry tears of joy,” MJ Day, Sports Illustrator Swimsuit Editor, said. “It’s been restorative to my faith that we can make a difference no matter how big or small.”

Additionally, Kostek has launched a GoFundMe to allow others to #GetBehindTheMask and protect our healthcare workers. Every dollar donated will go directly towards purchasing and creating masks along with other medical apparel.

So when we all say we are a FAMILY at @si_swimsuit I mean it in the truest sense of the word. @camillekostek is a former #siswimsearch winner, SI Rookie and 2019 Cover Model. @gronk is her partner in life and @patriots legend and friend and supporter of this brand. They just donated 10,000 KN95 masks to both @sjhnj and @bostonmedicalcenter. And I am moved beyond words. But this type of generosity deserves words. On a personal note, I have been appealing to people to #stayinandsew #flattenthecurve and support their local hospitals and caregivers in need. My husband is a physician at @sjhnj and many of our friends and colleagues are on the front lines there fighting this pandemic. Like many of the hospitals in the epicenter of this war, they are critically short on supplies. Especially masks. What Camille and Rob have done for this hospital, the caregivers, the patients, and the community made me cry tears of joy. It's been restorative to my faith that we can make a difference no matter how big or small. It shows me that the type of people that I get to work with care about me and you just as much as we care about them. And no matter what team they played for, we are all on the same team now. There is no way to quantify the gratitude I have for you both. Let's motivate others to do the same, or what they can to help our hospitals and caregivers battle for us. Make a mask, stay home, donate, use your platform. Do what you can, because it all matters. These masks equate to lives saved. Period. Thank you. ❤️
