Arizona Cardinals use Zoom, robots to give back to community at Thanksgiving time
The team purchased two robots ahead of the season, inspired by similar ones at the Phoenix Children’s Hospital. The robots have screens so that players can still see and talk to people at schools, hospitals and other community events.
Team owner Michael Bidwill did not want community interactions to stop. He just knew they needed to change a bit.
“It’s in complete compliance with all the safety restrictions, but still, we’re bringing our presence directly to kids in the hospital beds, to kids in schools,” Bidwill told The Republic in September.
