The New England Patriots are used to destroying Houston, but are now the ones helping the city get back on it’s feet after being destroyed by Hurricane Harvey.
Owner Robert Kraft has pledged up to $1 million to flood relief effort and the victims of the storm that’s left the city under water. The Patriots are also working with the American Red Cross to create a site to accept donations, to which the Kraft family will match.
“Houston is a special city to our family and our organization,” Kraft said. The Patriots won two Super Bowls in the city, including most recently Super Bowl 52 earlier this year.
Kraft added that Houston was a “tremendous host” each time and would like to help out when “Houston needs it most.”
But not just the Patriots are contributing. The Houston Texans and owner Bob McNair are donating $1 million to the United Way of Greater Houston Flood Relief Fund.
The team will be forced to relate their next preseason game due to the conditions.
