Bay Area
The professional sports teams of the Bay Area are coming together to aid fire relief

Seven professional sports teams of the Bay Area – the Golden State Warriors, Oakland Athletics, Oakland Raiders, San Francisco 49ers, San Francisco Giants, San Jose Earthquakes and San Jose Sharks – have combined to pledge $450,000 to help with relief of the devastating fires in California.

The teams made this announcement via a press release that read “#BayAreaUnite.”

The teams have established a page at fundraising site youcaring.com – www.youcaring.com/firerelief – where fans can donate money to support the victims of the fire.

So far, at least 21 have died in the fires, while hundreds of others have gone missing. Over 2,000 structures have been destroyed.

Recovery from the flames could cost tens of billions of dollars, said Gov. Jerry Brown Wednesday.

The uniting Bay Area teams urge fans to donate any money that they can to the cause. The youcaring site is a good way to raise money. Alternatively, you can donate $10 to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief by texting “REDCROSS” to 90999.
