FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Revolution are focused on helping those in need of assistance after the devastating damage caused by Hurricane Harvey over the weekend in Texas, especially in the greater Houston area. In an effort to provide much needed financial support to a community where they have family members and many friends, the Kraft family is offering to match all funds donated to the American Red Cross in support of Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief Fund up to $1 million.
The unprecedented flooding has already claimed multiple lives, caused tens of thousands to evacuate their homes and affected millions of residents living in the greater Houston area, the nation’s fourth largest city.
“Amid the destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey over the weekend in Texas, the thoughts of our entire organization are with everyone impacted,” said New England Revolution Investor/Operator, Robert Kraft. “Houston is a city the New England Revolution and our fans have shared many competitive moments with – most notably the 2006 and 2007 MLS Cups against the Houston Dynamo. We are eager to provide our support and hope by matching donations we will encourage more people to give to help ease the recovery of our displaced neighbors. And we wish all of our friends at the Houston Dynamo and their fans the best during this time of need.”
