First football, then basketball, now baseball. Sports teams across the nation are joining the effort to help disaster survivors. The New York Yankees, like the Boston Celtics, have announced a major donation to the Disaster Relief Fund – they’re giving $1million dollars to be split between the American Red Cross and The Salvation Army.
Which means – I’m assuming it’s an even split – $500,000 for the Disaster Relief Fund. This is an excellent contribution to this year’s goal of $100 million.
