The New York Yankees announced early Monday morning that the organization will be donating $100,000 to support all relief efforts associated with Hurricane Harvey; $50,000 will be going to the Red Cross and the other $50,000 to the Salvation Army.
“It is vital that we maintain our efforts to support the countless people and communities impacted by Hurricane Harvey,” said General Partner / Vice Chairperson Jennifer Steinbrenner Swindal. “Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with all those affected by this terrible storm.”
Additionally, the entire Yankees Major League roster has pledged to collectively donate $9,000 after every win for the remainder of the regular season.
“Hurricane Harvey was a devastating storm that has affected so many lives across Texas and Louisiana,” said Chase Headley. “It’s been inspiring to see the overwhelming number of people who have made a positive impact in that region as it begins its long recovery, and we wanted to play a small part in that process.”
After New York’s 7-4 victory over the Baltimore Orioles at Oriole Park, consider that $9,000 already in the bag and on the way to Hurricane Harvey victims.
