NFL All-Pro DT Gerald McCoy and PDQ Team Up to Provide Meals

Jun 23
Our PDQ squads and six-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Gerald McCoy are teaming up to give back in the Tampa Bay community. McCoy, who was a standout leader for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2010-18 and earned four All-Pro honors as well as six Pro Bowl selections, is working with PDQ to provide 6,000 meals to AdventHealth professionals at seven campuses across the Tampa Bay area.

McCoy, who played for the Carolina Panthers in 2019 and signed with the Dallas Cowboys this offseason, purchased 4,000 meals and PDQ donated 2,000 additional meals. The meals are being delivered from June 24-July 2 to staff members at the Carrollwood, Connerton, Dade City, North Pinellas, Tampa, Wesley Chapel and Zephyrhills campuses of AdventHealth.

“Gerald constantly gave back to our community during his time with the Buccaneers, and we are proud to partner with him to thank the thousands of AdventHealth healthcare professionals who are working tirelessly during this pandemic,” said Nick Reader, PDQ Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder.

PDQ’s area locations are: Bradenton, Brandon, Carrollwood, Clearwater, Lakeland, Pinellas Park, Riverview, Sarasota, Seminole, South Tampa, St. Petersburg, Trinity, Waters, Wesley Chapel, Westchase and USF/Temple Terrace (opening in September).
