PHOENIX — Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is once again showing how big his heart is.

On Wednesday, the football superstar joined forces with several Valley restaurants to deliver meals to front-line healthcare workers.

Fitz teamed up with Steak 44, Ocean 44, and Dominick’s to deliver the meals to Scottsdale Shea Medical Center, Banner University Medical Center and Mayo Clinic. He also stopped at the personal homes of several healthcare heroes.

“These are our true heroes right now and we would not be here if it weren’t for all the courageous doctors, nurses and staff who are giving it their all to save lives every day,” said Larry Fitzgerald. “I’m just here to do my small part and hopefully bring out a smile and give all these amazing healthcare workers a moment to enjoy a warm meal from my favorite restaurants.”

Thanks to a food donation on behalf of Jeff and Mike Mastro, about 100 meals, including an entree and side dish, were handed out.
