NFL team owners, players donate to Sandy relief

NEW YORK -- The National Football League and its players union jointly donated US$1 million to the American Red Cross relief efforts on Thursday to help in the recovery from damage caused by Hurricane Sandy.

In addition the NFL will have advertisements encouraging donations during telecasts of league games from Thursday through Monday.

The killer storm struck New York and New Jersey on Monday and delivered devastation to coastal regions, leaving much of New York City and surrounding areas without electricity, some regions flooded and others with major damage.

“We are pleased that NFL owners and players have joined together once again to support communities and families impacted by Hurricane Sandy,” said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and union boss DeMaurice Smith in a joint statement.

“We salute the dedication of those who have been working so hard on the rescue, relief and recovery effort.”

In addition, a pregame salute will be made to first response crews at all NFL games this weekend, including a home game for the New York Giants on Sunday.
