Robert Palmer, the owner of the Jacksonville Armada, will be donating 100% of the revenue from Jacksonville Armada FC online ticket sales this week to Hurricane Harvey relief.
"I challenge other business owners to take similar action to support Texas," Palmer wrote. "As Floridians we know too well the devastation a hurricane (and flooding) of this magnitude can cause."
Tropical Storm Harvey sent devastating floods pouring into Houston on Sunday. Rising water chased some people to rooftops or higher ground and overwhelmed rescuers.
After receiving an overwhelming number of inquiries from citizens and corporations who would like to help, Mayor Sylvester Turner has established the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund that will accept tax deductible flood relief donations. The fund is administered by the Greater Houston Community Foundation.
“We are getting calls from across the country and right here in our hometown, and the generosity of people who understand this disaster is truly amazing,” said Mayor Turner. “Together we can make a difference to those who will need extensive help to get back on their feet once this storm is over.”
