The Houston Texans announced Friday that the team's foundation has donated $25,000 to the United Way of Orange County (Texas) to assist in relief and recovery efforts from Hurricane Laura.
Hurricane Laura hit the Gulf Coast on Thursday as one of the strongest storms to ever strike the U.S. A full assessment of the damage wrought by the Category 4 system was likely to take days, and the threat of additional damage loomed as new tornado warnings were issued after dark in Arkansas and Mississippi even as the storm weakened into a depression.
The Texans altered their schedule this week in preparation for the storm, leaving the facility early Wednesday and holding virtual meetings the following morning ahead of Thursday night's scrimmage at NRG Stadium.
To support those impacted by Hurricane Laura, text LAURA to 90999 to give $10 to American Red Cross Hurricane Laura relief or visit here to donate.
