New England Patriots Owner Robert Kraft is putting his money where it counts- in Houston. Kraft has pledged to match the first $1 Million donated to the Red Cross for victims of the flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey.
Kraft released this statement as part of a press release:
“Houston is a special city to our family and our organization,” said Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft. “The New England Patriots and our fans have celebrated two of our franchise’s greatest and most memorable moments in Houston. The city was a tremendous host for Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004 and once again this past February for Super Bowl LI. Houston could not have provided more support to us during those visits, and we welcome the opportunity to provide this support when Houston needs it most. 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. 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.”
