The Miami Dolphins are looking for help in supporting the city of Houston and victims of Hurricane Harvey.
It’s been a long week for those in the Houston, TX community and entire Gulf Coast shoreline in Eastern Texas. Hurricane Harvey has completely displaced thousands of those in the Houston area with upwards to 50+” of rain since last week. A large portion are stuck in shelters throughout the city and dealing with overcrowding as we speak.
Houses, cars, personal items are all lost. And now those throughout the NFL is teaming together to help recoup the losses.

As of 10am ET time today the Thomas and the Dolphins have been accepting donations at Hard Rock Stadium. Food, dry clothes, baby supplies and more are all being accepted for donation.

Thomas, a native of Houston, is spearheading the campaign as his own family has been affected by the hurricane. The rest of the NFL is joining in, too; JJ Watt of the Houston Texans has raised over $5 million, all proceeds going towards Hurricane Harvey relief. Tennessee Titans owner Amy Adams Strunk donated $1 million of her own money to Watts’ campaign.
