Several stars are stepping up to lend a helping hand in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.In addition to offering words of advice and support, some celebrities are opening their wallets to help those struggling with the effects of the outbreak.The following is a list of some of the famous folks giving back:
The actor/singer posted a note in the stories portion of his verified Instagram account that he would be donating to to the Mid-South Food Bank in his hometown of Memphis, Tennessee.”This is a crazy time, but remember we’re all in it together,” Timberlake wrote. “Start small and support your local communities by getting food out to those in need.”

“Our hearts go out to all those who have been affected by this disease and to all the doctors and medical staff who have been working heroically non-stop in the past weeks in the effort to take care of our loved ones,” she added.
