Cowboys Donating $500,000 in Merchandise to Harvey Evacuees

    Instead of their final preseason game, the Dallas Cowboys are hosting a donation drive for Harvey victims Thursday at AT&T Stadium. The team has also pledged to donate $500,000 in merchandise, including clothing, to Harvey evacuees in North Texas. (Published Thursday, Aug. 31, 2017)

    The Dallas Cowboys have already pledged money to help Hurricane Harvey evacuees, and now they are providing clothing.

    Cowboys players, cheerleaders and the Jones family will make a stop at The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center in Dallas on Thursday afternoon to help make the donation.

    In a press release Wednesday, the team said it plans to unload approximately 300,000 pieces of apparel donated by the team's merchandise division to those in need.

    Items included in the donation are shirts, fleeces, outerwear and rompers, with a total value of approximately $500,000, the team said.

    NBC 5 and Kroger are teaming up to get help with the relief effort for the damage caused by Hurricane Harvey. Visit your neighborhood Kroger and make a monetary donation to the American Red Cross at Kroger's check-out registers. All of the money will go to the Red Cross Disaster Relief. The American Red Cross is working around the clock to help those in need by providing food, shelter and emotional support for the people whose lives have been disrupted. Visit RedCross.org or call 1-800-RED-CROSS for more information on the relief efforts.
