"The Hawks have partnered with State Farm, the city of Atlanta, and Goodr, a local startup geared toward fighting hunger in Atlanta, to help provide food for those who need it during the ongoing novel coronavirus crisis... Hawks principal owners Tony Ressler and Jami Gertz matched the contributions with donations of their own."
While there are no NBA games for at least 30 days, Atlanta Hawks owner Tony Ressler is making sure all employees will still get paid. “This is how, in my opinion, good business should be run,” Ressler told the AJC’s Sarah K. Spencer. “We want them to know that we’re committed to them, just as we want them to be committed to us. This is a relatively easy decision, it has been, for our senior staff. ... It seems to most of us it’s just the right thing to do. I don’t think it’s ever been a debate in our shop. Frankly, I’m proud of that. We’re thrilled to do it. We expected to do it.”
