MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami Dolphins players, officials and other members will be traveling to The Bahamas and Haiti this week to bring hygiene kits to the people effected by Hurricane Matthew.
At last week’s Dolphins home game against the Buffalo Bills, the Miami Dolphins Foundation and fans attending the game packed the kits, which include hand sanitizer, bar soap, wash cloths, a tooth brush, tooth paste, deodorant and wipes.
Additionally, on Wednesday Dolphins players, alumni, executives and cheerleaders will present a check of $20,000 to the relief efforts of Hurricane Matthew by The Miami Foundation Give2Cuba Fund. Proceeds will be directed toward those impacted by the widespread devastation in Cuba.
Dolphins players Michael Thomas, Kiko Alonso and Terrence Fede will be part of the group traveling this week, along with President and CEO Tom Garfinkel, alum and Hall of Famer Dwight Stephenson, Senior VP’s Nat Moore and Jason Jenkins and cheerleader Amina.
Along with the hygiene kits, the Dolphins will bring medical supplies, safe water solutions and generators.
The Dolphins are on their bye week and will resume football activities following the weekend.
Thomas, Alonso and Fede are choosing to use their bye week to help those suffering in the Caribbean nations.
Miami’s next game is Sunday, November 6th against the New York Jets at Hard Rock Stadium.
