George and Amal Clooney are lending a helping hand. 

The Hollywood power couple donated more than $1 million toward coronavirus relief, Clooney’s rep Stan Rosenfield confirmed to USA TODAY Wednesday. 

The Clooneys donated $250,000 each to the Motion Picture and Television home (where Clooney sits on the board of directors), the SAG-AFTRA FUND and Los Angeles Mayors Fund, according to Deadline, who first reported news of the generous contributions.

The couple also contributed $300,000 to international charities Lebanese Food Bank, Lombardo Italy Region and the National Health Service.

The Clooneys are the latest celebrities significantly pitching in – with their own wallets – when it comes to taking action to help others during the coronavirus pandemic.
