The veteran running back’s donation will help supply much-needed medical supplies, food, clothing, and more. Cajun Navy Relief and Rescue, All Hands and Hearts, Second Harvest Food Bank, Direct Relief, and The St. Bernard Project are joining him in his effort to help those in dire need. Hurricane Ida made landfall in New Orleans as a dangerous Category 4 storm on the 16th year anniversary date of Hurricane Katrina. The storm has left millions of people without power and caused widespread devastation.
