The viral #CombatCovid19Challenge is sweeping Fox News as many of the network’s on-air stars have contributed everything from meals to Yankees tickets for first responders and heroes of the coronavirus pandemic.

Sen. Ted Cruz and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand launched the challenge earlier this month. The rules are simple, perform a good deed to help support fellow Americans combat the coronavirus pandemic and then challenge three other people to do the same.

“Do something that will make a difference in your community to make it through this crisis. Do it in a way that’s safe, use PPE, don’t risk anybody’s safety,” Cruz said when announcing the challenge.

Griff Jenkins delivered food to the Washington Hospital Center, and Leland Vittert donated money to a local farm that also benefits a local food bank.

Pete Hegseth delivered food and supplies for those in need to Colts Neck Church and others, while Dana Perino stocked shelves at her local market and took dinner made by a local vendor to the ICU Emergency Room Nurses at Hackensack University Medical Center.

Ed Henry delivered food from a hard-hit restaurant in Manhattan named Amata to the NYPD and FDNY. Shannon Bream brought food to York Hospital’s anesthesiology department, Mike Emanuel delivered food from family-owned Rocco’s of McLean for Virginia first responders handling COVID-19 calls and Bret Baier dropped by the Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C. to bring food to the medical workers.
