Miami Heat News: Justise Winslow Personally Pledges $50K for Hurricane Harvey Relief

1 Min Read

Earlier this week, Miami Heat owner Micky Arison pledged at least $2 million to aid those affected by Hurricane Harvey and now Heat forward Justise Winslow is following suit.

On Friday, Miami reporter Ira Winderman took to Twitter to share the news that Winslow, a Houston native, has donated $50,000 for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.

Winslow is one of many professional athletes to offer his charity in the hopes that it helps the city of Houston on its road to recovery. Other notable donations have come from Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul and the Houston Texan’s J.J. Watt, while fellow Houston native and NBA star Gerald Green took to social media earlier in the week asking for someone with a boat to join him in helping any Houstonians stranded by the extensive flooding.

Houston’s recovery from the calamitous storm will likely take years to complete. Still, help from players such as Winslow goes a long way in bringing the city back to its former state.
