Owner, NFL, union donate $400,000 to flood victims
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The owner of the Tennessee Titans has joined with the NFL and the NFL Players Association in giving $400,000 to the American Red Cross and a Tennessee group to help the state recover from floods that killed at least 31 people in three states.
The Titans announced the donations Friday.
Owner Bud Adams decided to donate $200,000 from his Titans Foundation and encouraged the league and the players union to match his gift.
The money will be split between the Red cross and the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, which also runs the Metro Nashville Disaster Relief Fund and the Tennessee Emergency Relief Fund.
Adams also promises that Titans players and staff will be out in Nashville next week to help with recovery.
