The Glazer family gives $1 million to Hurricane Ian relief efforts


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ owners, the Glazer family, said on Thursday that they would be contributing $1 million to help with the recovery from Hurricane Ian. According to a team statement, the gift would go to “organizations who are supporting individuals who have been most touched by the disaster in Southwest Florida and throughout the state.” Darcie Glazer Kassewitz, a co-owner of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, stated in the statement that “the harm done throughout our state and the devastation sustained in Southwest Florida will be felt for some time.” “Our family is dedicated to supporting the recovery, which will need entire communities to work resolutely and together for a considerable amount of time. The numerous individuals affected, the brave first responders, and everyone working to keep others safe are in our thoughts and prayers.” The hurricane, as is well known, rendered 2.67 million households and businesses without electricity.
