Owner of the Tennessee Titans, Amy Adams Strunk, has reportedly donated $1 million to J.J. Watt's YouCaring drive to help Hurricane Harvey victims in Texas.

According to titansonline.com, the donation was made addition to the $25,000 the Titans Foundation donated to the Red Cross over the weekend.

 

 

"The flooding and devastation to the Houston area has been painful to watch," Strunk said.  "As a native to the area, I have been so encouraged to see how the locals and the nation as a whole have come together to help one another."

"The NFL, at the end of the day, is a family that helps one another in times of need. JJ has created a dynamic where boots will be on the ground with immediate aid to those who need it. The Titans want to be a part of his effort to help the Houston community as it rebuilds. I talked with him earlier today and he was very appreciative. We discussed his plans and I know he is determined to help as many people as he can," Strunk said.

Watts, a Houston Texans defensive lineman, announced his fundraising efforts to help victims of the hurricane Tuesday, which surpassed $2 million. He set the goal after clearing $1.5 million earlier that day.
