The Saints can’t play in New Orleans yet due to Hurricane Ida, but that hasn’t stopped some players and the organization from giving their time and money for the benefit of the community.
Gayle Benson, Saints owner, initially donated $ 1,000,000 to the relief fund. This prompted the Falcons and Ravens to donate $ 1,000,000 each. Additional $ 1,000,000 was donated by the National Football League Organization.
Apart from the money being donated by the owners, Cam Jordan, the defensive end for the Saints, announced via his Instagram account that he would donate $ 40,000 to Second Harvest Food Bank New Orleans to help people who have been left homeless since the hurricane.
But that’s not the end. Jordan will start with video messages of support for donations. His videos start at $ 4, to highlight the fact that 1 in 4 Louisiana children suffer from hunger. 23 videos will be available at a higher price that depict the 23 communities Second Harvest serves.

Cameo decided to donate the difference as Jordan charges $320 for his cameo videos. Jordan plans to continue fundraising for nonprofits.
Saints running back Alvin Kamara and quarterback Jameis Winston have not donated any public funds, but they have asked the New Orleans Mayor LaToya Kantrell to help them. Winston spoke out about Ida’s post workout relief in Jacksonville, Florida.
