Maybe instead of spending so much time covering what players aren’t doing for our country’s flag, we should be focusing on what they are doing for its people.
Yesterday we told you of the incredible gesture of Deshaun Watson, the rookie Texans QB who donated his game check to three cafeteria workers at NRG Stadium who were impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
And today we tell you about Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera who took to Twitter on Thursday to announce that he is donating $50,000 to the hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico.
“As I said, whatever we can do to help out, I think it would be greatly appreciated,” Rivera said. “(They need) food, water and electricity right now. Those that don’t have generators are really struggling up there. Getting fresh water and food obviously is the other concern, and then fuel for the generators and stuff like that.”
Rivera’s father is from Puerto Rico and he said all his family members on the island have been accounted for in the wake of the storm.
