"Please don't go to sleep with an empty stomach or worry about doing without," Greiss said in the post. "Don't be afraid or embarrassed. Just send me a private message. We might not have it, but (we) will be more than happy to share whatever food or supplies we have." 

Greiss' good deed came after fellow Islanders goalie Semyon Varlamov led his teammates in donating 3,000 N95 masks to Northwell Health system on Long Island that were delivered Thursday

"We are all in this together," Greiss continued in the post. "Be kind to one another. This is temporary and [we'll] get through this together."
