The Miami Dolphins have joined the list of teams making significant contributions to hurricane relief.
Owner Stephen Ross, the Dolphins, and his real estate company headquartered in New York have donated $500,000 to the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York in the wake of last week’s devastating storm.
“The devastation of Hurricane Sandy knows no boundaries, and I know I speak for the Dolphins in expressing our dedication to help those in need during this difficult time,” Ross said in a statement. “We saw first hand the damage the storm caused to our community, and with the close ties South Florida has with the Northeast, the Dolphins certainly want to support those families who are dealing with Sandy’s aftermath. But no matter where we live, our hearts go out to the people who suffered losses as a result of the storm, and we are committed to help them recover from the tragedy.”
The Dolphins join the Giants ($500,000), the Vikings ($100,000), the Colts (at least $65,000), Packers cornerback Charles Woodson ($100,000), and the NFL/NFLPA ($1 million) in making contributions. Here’s hoping more teams do the same.
