SHEBOYGAN — Sam Dekker and his wife Olivia have teamed up with the Sheboygan County food bank to bring donations and meals to the people of Sheboygan County.

The former Badgers basketball star and his ESPN reporter wife appeared in a video by the Sheboygan County Food Bank. They asked that people donate to the food bank in order to help residents of Sheboygan County.

Sheboygan County has a special place in Sam's heart as that is where he grew up and went to high school. The two tend to visit the area from time to time to see family and friends.

In the video, Olivia and Sam take turns commenting on the current situation and what needs to be done to help.

"Our community's need has never been greater," said Sam. "COVID-19 has brought a new challenge for all of us to face and with that, the opportunity to come together and share the gift of food and life."

Also featured in the video is food bank employees as well as community members benefiting from donations.
