The Glazer family, owners of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, announced a sizeable donation to help with Hurricane Ian relief efforts after the catastrophic storm wreaked havoc across the state of Florida over the past two days.
Hurricane Ian made landfall in southwest Florida on Wednesday afternoon and caused severe damage in a number of communities that were in its path due to high winds, flooding, and storm surges.
On Thursday, the Glazer family announced a $1 million donation to the relief efforts.
“The destruction suffered in Southwest Florida and the damage inflicted throughout our state will be felt for some time,” Buccaneers co-owner Darcie Glazer said in a statement. “It will take entire communities resiliently working together for an extended period and our family is committed to aiding in the recovery.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the countless people affected, the heroic first responders, and all of those helping to keep others safe.”

Earlier this week, the Buccaneers relocated their practices to the Miami Dolphins facilities when it initially appeared that Tampa was in the direct path of Hurricane Ian.
Our deepest condolences go out to those who suffered long-lasting damage from the storm and we continue to keep all of those impacted by the storm in our thoughts.
