Dolphins owner Stephen Ross pledges $1 million to Hurricane Irma relief efforts

The team and its owner are helping Florida fix the destruction caused by the hurricane.

The Miami Dolphins remain displaced following a devastating hurricane that hit the fourth-most populous state in the United States over the weekend. The press release follows, as reported by Adam Schefter of ESPN. That group will deploy to rebuilding projects in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. Miami Dolphins Special Teams was originally created to support community efforts in times of emergency.

In addition, the Dolphins have partnered with the AARP Foundation on a matching funds grant campaign, with 100 percent of the money raised going directly into the community.

Lastly, the team will assess long-term damage and collaborate with local and regional community partners involved with critical relief and rebuilding efforts in Monroe and Collier counties along with the Florida Keys.

Millions remain without power in Florida after the deadly Hurricane Irma struck pretty much the entire state in what was one of the most-intense storms in recent United States history.
