The Miami Dolphins announced on Saturday a series of relief efforts aimed to assist the people of Florida, Cuba, The Bahamas, and Haiti who were impacted by Hurricane Matthew. The team is also taking fan donations during the month of October to increase the assistance provided.

The team has committed $100,000 to be provided for relief efforts, designed to provide support for both short- and long-term relief efforts. They are also taking donations of supplies at each gate during the team’s October 9 game against the Tennessee Titans, October 16 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the October 23 game against the Buffalo Bills. The list of supplies that can be donated can be found at http://tinyurl.com/finsdonate.

The Dolphins are also adding all the proceeds from the team’s 50/50 raffles during games at Hard Rock Stadium and giving fans a chance to donate directly to the relief efforts through links on Dolphins.com.
