Josh Norman of the Washington Redskins to Aid Children and Families in Puerto Rico



WASHINGTON, Nov. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Josh Norman and his Starz 24 foundation, in partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America, are spearheading a campaign to benefit the thousands of youth impacted by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. The two-week-long initiative will be activated with Josh's personal commitment of $50,000 and seeks to raise an additional $200,000. Josh is calling on the sports community, caring corporations, foundations, philanthropists and entrepreneurs to invest in the children of Puerto Rico.

Joining the campaign is one of the nation's oldest and largest advocates for children, Boys & Girls Clubs of America. "I am thrilled to be partnering with the leading advocate for our nation's young people, in alerting our entire nation to the critical needs of the 3.4 million people affected by Hurricane Maria," says Norman. "Their staff are serving children throughout Puerto Rico with critical services, supplies, food and other forms of support. Some of the Clubs that have survived the devastation are housing desperately sick children who have nowhere else to go."
