The Star Ledger: Team finds many ways to help Sandy's victims
Jorge Castillo | The Star Ledger
The Giants couldn't deliver a victory against the Steelers on Sunday for those affected by Hurricane Sandy, but the organization is making a more significant impact off the field.
Yesterday the Giants announced that they are donating $500,000 to aid victims of the superstorm. The contribution will be divided evenly between the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund and the Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City.
"The New York metropolitan area sustained extensive and devastating damage to its infrastructure in Hurricane Sandy," Giants owners John Mara and Steve Tisch said in a joint statement. "The Giants want to do everything we can to assist our neighbors, fans and friends. Toward that end, after careful consideration, we have decided to make donations to these two very worthy funds. We are in this for the long haul and will continue to assist relief efforts in our hard-hit region."
Established by Gov. Chris Christie in the aftermath of the storm, the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund is dedicated to rebuilding the devastated Jersey Shore.
