The NFL Foundation will match Mr. McNair and the Houston Texans’ $1 million contribution to the United Way Relief Fund to address the immediate needs of those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. The total $2 million contribution will support first response efforts by the American Red Cross, Salvation Army and the United Way of Greater Houston.
Bob McNair and the Texans are pledging $1,000,000 to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
The United Way of Greater Houston’s ‘Texans Helping Texans’ flood relief fund got a boost from the team’s Founder/Chairman/CEO on Monday. The team is in Frisco, Texas, and practiced at the Dallas Cowboys facilities on Monday. They’ll do the same on Tuesday.
“These dollars will be put to good use in the relief and recovery efforts,” Texans head coach Bill O’Brien said. “We also hope our actions encourage others to do what they can to help their neighbors in need right now.”
Shortly after O’Brien announced the McNair contribution, Charlotte Jones Anderson, who is the chair of the NFL Foundation, announced that organization will also donate $1,000,000.
Hit $500k within 24 hours.
I’ve raised the goal to $1 million.
