Josh Allen is featured in the latest Nike commercial where the quaterback shares that that Buffalo is the perfect place for him. In the ad, there is a statement shown announcing that Nike and Josh Allen are pledging $100,000 to Oishei's Children's Hospital to aid with patient treatment.

Allen is doing this to give back and honor the community that rallied behind him. He is so appreciative of the Buffalo community for all the support they have given him and his family since he was drafted here in 2018.

Last season after a 44-34 win over the Seattle Seahawks in a game which Allen had one of the best games of his career announced that he was playing with a heavy heart because his grandmother, Patricia Allen, had passed away shortly before.

After Bills Mafia found out, they wanted to honor her memory and made $17 donations to Buffalo's Oishei's Children's Hospital. In a little over a month, there was over a million dollars raised to the Patricia Allen Fund. In November 2021, the Patricia Allen Pediatric Recovery Wing was unveiled with Allen in attendance.

The Patricia Allen Fund has grown to over $1.4 million, with donations still coming in from individuals, businesses and events throughout 2021.

A donation page for the fund can be found here.
