Houston Texans Donate $1 Million To Hurricane Relief

The Houston Texans were hit hard in their own backyard by other nature. Hurricane Harvey has caused massive amounts of damage since making landfall, much of it a result of flooding.
In an effort to help fund relief efforts, the Texans have donated $1 million dollars to the United Way of Greater Houston.
The NFL Foundation has agreed to match the Texans donation of $1 million, and New England Patriots owner Robert Craft has donated $1 million to Red Cross relief efforts.
In his address to the media, coach Bill O’Brien indicated that several coaches and players on the team have been displaced from their homes due to flooding. They are a few of the many Texans that have greatly affected, particularly those living in mandatory and voluntary evacuation centers.
There have been other relief efforts made on an individual basis. JJ Watt has pledged $100,000 of his own money, and is actively campaigning to raise more money. His goal of $200,000 was reached within two hours. He raised the goal to $500,000, which has nearly been met at the time of this posting.
