March 24, 2014

donationweb20s-2-webMLS expansion franchise New York City FC, in conjunction with the New York Yankees, have donated $65,000 to the American Red Cross.

The newly-formed club have come to the aid of the local community following a freak explosion in East Harlem on March 12 which killed eight people and injured at least 70 others.

NYC FC and the Yankees have bound together to make a significant donation to the relief effort which was warmly welcomed by American Red Cross of Greater New York CEO Josh Lockwood.

Almost one week after the explosion, the vital work of providing relief services to those affected by this tragedy continues, Lockwood told the New York Daily News.

Currently, a multi-lingual Red Cross response team is at the NY City Resident Service Center providing one-on-one case management and emotional support.

On behalf of all those we serve, we thank our generous partners the New York Yankees and New York City Football Club for helping to make this possible.

The explosion, which city officials say was caused by a gas leak, forced two apartment buildings to collapse in the East Harlem neighbourhood of Manhattan.
