The Belgian international has provided masks, face shields and hand sanitiser through a donation to the club's charitable arm, the Palace for Life Foundation, who have worked to support the local community throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
Benteke's donation adds to the contributions through the #PlayersTogether initiative, which has seen millions given to the NHS by Premier League footballers, while earlier in the lockdown the Palace squad made a "generous" donation to local charity, Age UK Croydon.
“It’s really nice for me to be able to help where I can," said Benteke. "As footballers we’re very privileged, so to give back a little and enable Palace for Life Foundation staff get back out and deliver their sessions to the community is a great feeling.”
Mike Summers, chief executive of the Foundation, said: “We are extremely grateful to Christian for thinking of us at this time and generously supplying us with so much safety equipment.
“It has been a very difficult few months, in particular for those in cramped living conditions, struggling to feed their families or coping with bereavement. We hope that by starting to deliver more of our community-based sessions in the coming weeks, we can provide a support network to those who need it most.”
Before the return of football last month, Palace were using the club's chefs and kitchens to provide more than 10,000 meals to those in need.
