The Pittsburgh Steelers continue to help support the NFL's Draft-A-Thon initiative as more donations were made today. The designated charities the Steelers have been contributing to include the Salvation Army and the United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania.
Today, center Maurkice Pouncey, defensive end Stephon Tuitt and tight end Vance McDonald each made donations to help support the efforts that will directly aid those in need during these times. Additionally, Bruce Rauner, a member of the Steelers Ownership Group, also contributed to the NFL's initiative associated with helping during the COVID-19 emergency.
Since Wednesday, the Steelers have provided significant donations to the Salvation Army and United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania. Steelers President Art Rooney II and his wife Greta, members of the Rooney Family, Head Coach Mike Tomlin, General Manager Kevin Colbert, and members of the Steelers Ownership Group have all contributed to the Draft-A-Thon.
This year's NFL Draft will include many firsts, including the "Draft-A-Thon" to help support communities around the Country in meeting the needs associated with the COVID-19 emergency. The NFL Draft will bring communities together by rallying clubs, players, fans and partners with a three-day virtual fundraiser, the NFL's "Draft-A-Thon." The NFL teams and League Office will be calling on fans and communities to donate during the NFL Draft to one central fund benefitting several COVID-19 relief efforts, which were selected by the NFL Foundation.
Fans can make their donations at: at NFL.com/relief where there will also be a live donation tracker. The organizations whose COVID-19 relief efforts will benefit by donations are: Salvation Army, United Way, American Red Cross, Feeding America, Meals on Wheels, and the CDC Foundation.
