New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft has committed to matching the first $1 million raised by the American Red Cross in relief of the damage caused by Hurricane Harvey.
The New England Patriots are working with the Red Cross to setup a website to accept those donations.
“Houston is a special city to our family and our organization,” Kraft said. “The New England Patriots and our fans have celebrated two of our franchise’s greatest and most memorable moments in Houston.”
“When natural disasters have impacted our country, they have always unified communities and rallied support throughout the nation. We have already heard stories of heroic rescues and strangers helping strangers in this time of need,” Kraft said. “These stories have inspired us, as we always encourage bringing communities together, building bridges and helping others. We are eager to join in these efforts and provide our support.”
To donate to the Red Cross, visit redcross.org, call 1-800 RED CROSS or text HARVEY to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
