NFL joins four teams in donating to Mexico City earthquake relief efforts

NFL and 4 teams donating toward Mexico City relief efforts

The NFL sent out a press release today to announce that several teams including the Pittsburgh Steelers are helping donate money to relief efforts for the victims of the Mexico City natural disaster.

The NFL and the Patriots, Raiders and Steelers will together contribute $200,000 to support disaster relief efforts following last month's quake in Mexico City.

In addition to the Patriots, Raiders and Steelers, the Cowboys have committed $50,000 to the Salvation Army's relief efforts in Mexico City to assist with crisis intervention services for victims and first responders.

As the NFL continues to extend its reach to Mexico, the league itself is taking action to help those impacted by the devastating natural disaster that hit Mexico City last month.

The funds raised through Fundacion Banorte will be used to help people rebuild their homes, while the Salvation Army will provide necessities such as food, water, shelter and emotional care for those in need.

The money will go to Banorte's Fundación Banorte, which is a local bank involved with relief efforts.

This comes prior to the Oakland Raiders "hosting" the New England Patriots at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City next month.
