Reds to donate $40,000 to Hurricane Harvey relief

The Cincinnati Reds are pleased to announce that a donation of $40,000 will be made to Hurricane Harvey relief and recovery efforts.

The donation was generated by the Reds Community Fund's portion of Split the Pot ticket sales from the three Reds vs Mets games this week (Aug 29-31) plus generous donations from Mike & Michele Schuster of Michael Schuster Associates and Levi Blachman of StubWorld.  

The funds will be equally distributed between the American Red Cross and former Reds right fielder Jay Bruce's efforts to raise money for Southeast Texas and his hometown of Beaumont, Texas.
