White Sox outfielder Eloy Jiménez honored a good cause with a good deed.

In a show of gratitude to a local bridal shop, Novias Davila in Little Village, Jimenez donated official Sox uniforms and funds to the shop, which is making face masks needed for the community during the coronavirus pandemic.

Shop owner Tania Hernández received a video message from Jiménez on Friday, thanking her team for their commitment to the community. Jimenez gave each of seven workers a $500 Jewel-Osco gift card and $500 in cash to provide support during this time.

The Little Village area had the most confirmed coronavirus cases of any single ZIP code in the state as of May 6. Jiménez asked that the face masks are donated to first responders in the neighborhood.

Jimenez said he appreciates and respects the workers are doing for a good cause.

“Thank you very much, and I hope God blesses you for all you do for other people,” Jimenez said via a video message to the workers.

“We are so blessed to have people like you helping in the community,” store manager Paty Navarro said.

The Sox donated the team uniforms as fabric for the masks.
