NFL Foundation Announces $1 Million In Relief Efforts of Hurricane Irma

@TheCHTOnSports

In the aftermath of the largest hurricane on record to hit the Caribbean, engulfing the state of Florida causing billions of dollars in destruction and millions of people with electricity and water, and some without homes, the resilient people of the call Florida home start to rebuild.

Wednesday, the NFL Foundation announced that they will “contribute $1 million to Hurricane Irma relief efforts to be split evenly between the American Red Cross and the five living former American Presidents’ One America Appeal.”  These organizations “will address the immediate needs of those impacted throughout Florida and the Florida Keys, while some of the Red Cross funds will support the hardest hit areas in the Caribbean.”

This amazing contribution is represented by equally amazing efforts from the three Florida NFL franchises that donated $1 million to (Jacksonville Jaguars) Florida’s First Coast Relief Fund, (Miami Dolphins) to the AARP Foundation Miami Dolphins Hurricane Irma Relief Fund and (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) to the American Red Cross, all of which the NFL Foundation will match donations to.

In an additional effort, the NFL encourages fans and otherwise to text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 to American Red Cross Hurricane Relief and to visit oneamericaappeal.org to donate to the fund.
