Yankees donate to Sandy relief effort
By Andrew Marchand
The Yankees today announced they will donate $500,000 to the American Red Cross to support the relief efforts in the Tri-State area associated with Hurricane Sandy.
“The damage and destruction to the Tri-State area caused by Hurricane Sandy is daunting, but we have seen the great resiliency of this region before,” said Hal Steinbrenner. “As a neighbor and community member, the Yankees embrace our role of stepping forward and assisting the American Red Cross, which comes to the aid of so many people through their tireless efforts.”
Yankee Stadium had no major damage, according to team president Randy Levine. The stadium had power on Tuesday and did not have any flooding.
