Kevin Hayes of the Philadelphia Flyers and Angelo's Pizzeria South Philly teamed up to donate lunch to workers at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania on Tuesday.
The Flyers center had lunch sent to medical professionals working in the specialized ICU units on three floors at the hospital, which is treating patients with the coronavirus.
"On behalf of the city of Philadelphia and our organization, we would like to say thank you so much for what you're doing, for being every-day heroes and putting your lives on the line to save others," Hayes said. "It's very impressive. We'd like you guys to get the recognition you deserve."

Hayes is in his first season with the Flyers after signing a seven-year, $50 million contract ($7.14 million average annual value) on June 19. He was tied for the NHL lead with four shorthanded goals, and was second on the Flyers with 23 goals when the season was paused March 12 due to concerns surrounding the coronavirus.
