Tom Brady announced Thursday his plan to make a donation towards ongoing relief efforts in Florida as the state combats the devastating effects of Hurricane Ian.
The Buccaneers traveled to Miami on Tuesday, normally an off day for players, to continue preparing for Week 4 while simultaneously monitoring the trajectory of the hurricane. Earlier in the day, the team announced its home game against the Chiefs on Sunday Night Football will still take place at 8:20 p.m. ET inside Raymond James Stadium as scheduled; the NFL reportedly planned to move the game to the Vikings’ U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis if the weather proved too severe.
A few hours after Tampa’s announcement, Brady shared on Twitter that he intends to donate to the Florida Disaster Fund, and urged the “rest of the NFL family in our state.” to do the same.
“Happy we’re [sic] able to head home for Sunday night, but so many people in Florida won’t be able to do the same. I’ll be making a donation to the Florida Disaster Fund to get things started, and I’m hoping the rest of the NFL family in our state will follow suit,” Brady tweeted.
