Jameis Winston and Cam Jordan are stepping up to help the city of New Orleans recover from the devastating damage to caused by Hurricane Ida.
The Saints QB and defensive end announced that for the rest of the season, Winston and Jordan will donate $1,000 for every touchdown and sack the team records to help local communities recover from the ravages of the storm.
“Hurricane Ida has had a devastating effect on New Orleans and the broader Southern Louisiana region," Winston said in a statement. “We are blessed to be able to return to the city this week, but we know our return does not signify the full restoration of New Orleans and the surrounding area."
Winston says the money will go towards non-profit organizations to help with the short- and long-term needs to help bring the community back. Winston and Jordan also reached out to fans for their help in donating any amount to #FORNOLA.
"Nola is a city built from family and community, it has become a home for my family teammates," Jordan says. “We pledged as one to continue helping our city rebuild and being what it needs as we work through this time to restore.”
The two have already donated $90,000 of their own money for the damage that occurred during the Category 4 storm in late August. Saints owner Gayle Benson has donated $1 million.
Through three games, the Saints have 9 touchdowns and 6 sacks. In Week 4, they finally return to the Superdome for their home opener against the New York Giants.
