NBA and Players’ Union to Donate $1 Milllion for OKC Tornado Relief

Following  Kevin Durant’s pledge of $1 million for the massive tornado that hit Oklahoma City, the NBA and the players’ union are combining to donate $1 million as well for relief efforts through multiple charitable organizations . Per the AP : “The league and the NBPA announced the joint pledge on Tuesday. The money will be going to the American Red Cross, Salvation Army, and other disaster relief efforts after a tornado devastated the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore on Monday. The donation follows $1 million pledges from the Oklahoma City Thunder and star forward Kevin Durant. Durant says seeing the devastation in his adopted hometown was ‘tough to watch.’ But he also believes the community will band together to get through such a difficult time.”
