Looks like the Jets read my post from yesterday.
After the NFL and NFLPA, the Giants, the Dolphins and several other teams and their owners donated money to help those affected by Superstorm Sandy, the Jets finally responded with a donation of their own on Thursday, announcing that they are donating $500,000 to Sandy relief efforts. The donation will be divided between three organizations: The Mayor’s Fund for NYC Hurricane Relief, the Nassau and Suffolk County branches of the Salvation Army, and the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund.
The Jets will also dedicate their Thanksgiving game to helping and honoring those affected by the storm. 100 first responders have been invited to participate in pre-game activities and a brief moment of silence will be taken before kickoff to honor the victims.
“Our hearts go out to all of those affected by Hurricane Sandy,” said Jets chairman and CEO Woody Johnson in a statement. The Jets hope that these donations will make a difference in the lives of those people. We will continue to find ways to assist those in need and encourage our fans to find ways to help with these efforts.”
