A disaster becomes more “real” when you know someone who’s been personally affected. And after watching this interview with Jack Jewsbury, captain of the much-loved Portland Timbers, I guarantee you’ll be touched.
Because of Jewsbury’s connection to the recent tornado, the Timbers are stepping up with a new Red Cross partnership to raise money for the recent spring storms. They’ll be spreading the “Text REDCROSS to 90999” message at Sunday’s game and our volunteers will be on hand to help with cash donations. Huge thanks to the Timbers for (once again!) supporting Red Cross disaster relief efforts in a big way.
Our hearts are with Jewsbury’s family and all of those affected by the tornado. If you want the latest on Red Cross relief efforts, please check out our online disaster newsroom.
