Miami Dolphins, New York Giants, New York Jets and NFL Foundation to Contribute $200,000 to Hurricane Maria Relief Efforts
NFL to Match Donations to Miami Dolphins Linebacker Kiko Alonso's Hurricane Maria Relief Campaign Up to $50,000
In tomorrow's Thursday Night Football game, the NFL will include in-game messages inviting fans across the country to join in relief efforts for those affected by Hurricane Maria. The NFL will encourage fans to text MARIA to 90999 to donate $10 to American Red Cross Hurricane Relief. The game is available on CBS, NFL Network and Amazon Prime Video.
The Miami Dolphins, New York Giants, New York Jets and the NFL Foundation together will contribute $200,000 to the American Red Cross to address the immediate needs of those impacted by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and other areas. The NFL will also match donations up to $50,000 to Dolphins linebacker Kiko Alonso’s Miami and Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief Campaign.
These donations address the specific devastation in Puerto Rico and is in addition to the NFL's previous $1 million contribution to Hurricane Irma relief efforts, which impacted people in Florida and the Caribbean.
Our thoughts are with the people of Puerto Rico during this difficult time.
