HENDERSON, Nev. – As proud members of Hawaii's "Ninth Island," the Las Vegas Raiders have launched a variety of efforts to lend support to wildfire relief in Maui. The Raiders Foundation will contribute $100,000 to the Hawaii Community Foundation and Raiders employees will assemble care packages.
In a show of support on the field, Raiders players will wear a special "Ninth Island" t-shirt during warm-ups when they face the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday. The custom Raiders design will be available for purchase beginning Saturday at Raiders.com/shop. 100% of net proceeds raised will be donated to the Hawaii Community Foundation's Maui Strong Resilience Fund, where it will be directed to support the evolving needs within the community including food, shelter, and financial services.
"Our hearts break for those impacted by the Maui wildfires, both in Hawaii and here in our community," said Las Vegas Raiders President Sandra Douglass Morgan. "We hope our efforts remind those affected that our hearts are with them and we are sending them strength and comfort."
