Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo has donated STG250,000 ($A445,000) to help tackle poverty in the city.
The 47-year-old has dug into his own pocket as part of the Wolves Foundation’s STG500,000 ($A893,000) Feed Our Pack project.
The scheme aims to reduce the effects of food poverty and support residents of Wolverhampton affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Wolves fans and the people of Wolverhampton have been fantastic to me since I arrived here almost four years ago, and I wanted to give something back and help the people who are struggling during the pandemic,” said Nuno.
“When you live in a city, you see and hear how people have been affected, but it is also a great city where people help and support each other and this is a really important project from the Wolves Foundation.
“Together we are stronger and I hope our supporters will want to join in and make sure we look after those people in our community who need it most during these really difficult times.”
Feed Our Pack will support selected foodbanks in the city to help increase the amount of food distributed to meet demand.
It will also aim to combat holiday hunger by providing a program of food, sport and education to local children during school holidays.
