NFL Statement on Mexico City

“The NFL Foundation, New England Patriots, Oakland Raiders and Pittsburgh Steelers will together contribute $200,000 to Banorte’s Fundación Banorte to support disaster relief efforts following last month’s earthquake in Mexico City. Fundación Banorte will match these donations dollar-for-dollar.

Funds will be used to help rebuild homes affected by the earthquake in and around Mexico City.

The Dallas 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. Through this donation, the Salvation Army will provide water, food, shelter and emotional care to those immediately affected by the disaster and work with local officials to address long-term assistance for the most vulnerable and in need.

The Oakland Raiders will host the New England Patriots at Estadio Azteca on Sunday, Nov. 19.

Our thoughts are with the people of Mexico City and surrounding areas as they work to rebuild their community following this devastating earthquake.”
