The New York Yankees today announced that the organization will donate $100,000 to support the relief efforts associated with Hurricane Harvey with $50,000 going to the Red Cross and $50,000 to the Salvation Army.

Additionally, the entire Yankees Major League roster has pledged to collectively donate $9,000 after every win for the remainder of the regular season.

"It is vital that we maintain our efforts to support the countless people and communities impacted by Hurricane Harvey," said General Partner / Vice Chairperson Jennifer Steinbrenner Swindal. "Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with all those affected by this terrible storm."

"Hurricane Harvey was a devastating storm that has affected so many lives across Texas and Louisiana," said Chase Headley. "It's been inspiring to see the overwhelming number of people who have made a positive impact in that region as it begins its long recovery, and we wanted to play a small part in that process."
