The large donation was given to the Correa Family Foundation and with the help of Kid's Meals Inc and NACC Disaster Services, more than 25,000 healthy meals will be delivered to families in need. 

"José and I feel that this joint effort is a small way to express our commitment and gratitude to the community that means so much to us. Hopefully, we can inspire others and together relieve some of the suffering caused by this natural disaster," said Correa. 

The Correa Family Foundation said it plans on continuing its fundraising efforts for food and water distribution. The foundation also plans to support families who lost their homes with upcoming recovery efforts.
