Dolphins, Buccaneers, Jaguars donating to OneOrlando Fund
Florida’s NFL teams will donate money to support the victims and survivors of the Orlando nightclub shooting, the NFL announced Friday.
The Miami Dolphins, Jacksonville Jaguars and Tampa Bay Buccaneers will together contribute $400,000 to the OneOrlando Fund.
The OneOrlando Fund was created by Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer to prove support to the victims of the terror attack at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando. 49 people were killed in the shooting, the worst attack in America since Sept. 11.
“Our hearts go out to the victims and their families. This was a deeply disturbing and tragic event, one that has had reverberations across the entire country,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement. “We are encouraged by the strength and resilience of the Orlando community and will continue to look for ways to lend our support.”
