Football is family. And when family needs help, they come together.
On Wednesday, the Carolina Panthers announced the organization will be providing relief in the path to recovery from Hurricane Ida. Carolina Panthers Charities, the Nicole & David Tepper Foundation and the David A. Tepper Charitable Foundation are donating $1 million to the efforts in New Orleans and its surrounding areas.
The Teppers have also pledged their support for the areas more local to the state of North Carolina that have also been affected by the hurricane.

Ida has now been recorded as the second-most powerful hurricane to ever hit Louisiana. Firms estimate, according to The Wall Street Journal, damages of up to $15 billion across the states of Lousiana, Alabama and Mississippi.
The New Orleans Saints, who gave a tip of the cap to the Panthers for their support, will not be playing the season opener in their home of the Caesars Superdome as a result. They will, instead, meet the Green Bay Packers in Jacksonville at TIAA Bank Field for their Week 1 matchup.
Thank you Nicole & David Tepper for this tremendous donation and your kindness!
As Mickey Loomis said today: We’re all competitors and compete really hard on the field…but when there’s a crisis, I feel like the NFL family is always one of the first ones to step up. https://t.co/QjMdIi7vjY
