The Miami Dolphins are teaming up with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the NFL to assist the victims and families of those impacted by the recent attack in Orlando. Together, they are donating $400,000 to the OneOrlando Fund, which was formed by Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer to provide direct support.

“Our City has just begun to recover from the impact of the Pulse tragedy,” said Mayor Dyer in a release from the Dolphins. “The support of partners like the NFL and the NFL’s three Florida-based teams sends a signal to our City that we are not in this alone. The money we are raising will provide a way to help us respond to the needs of our community, now and in the time to come. Words cannot begin to express how grateful we are for the outpouring of support from across the globe.”

“It's hard to find words to describe the emotions we all felt when news of this senseless tragedy broke,” said Dolphins Owner Stephen Ross. “We are united with the NFL, the Jaguars, and the Buccaneers in making this commitment to the OneOrlando Fund. We give our heartfelt condolences to those impacted by this horrific act and are hopeful that these donations help in their time of need.”
