Astros shortstop Carlos Correa made a donation of more than $500,000 worth of medical equipment to the city of Houston on Friday.
The equipment will aid the city during the coronavirus pandemic. When the pandemic subsides, Correa said the products will be donated to “underequipped hospitals in the poorest regions of Central America.”
Correa announced the donation on Instagram, where he thanked NACC Disaster Services and Kindred Healthcare for their collaboration. The donation was made on behalf of the Correa Family Foundation.
Items donated included surgical equipment, exercise and rehabilitation machines, a high-tech mannequin for CPR training, IV poles, and handicapped accessible furniture.
On Thursday, Correa, and pitcher Lance McCullers Jr. donated lunch to nurses and doctors on the COVID-19 team at Houston Methodist Hospital.
