WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) – The new owner of the NFL’s Carolina Panthers has announced an initial package to aid Hurricane Florence disaster relief efforts in North and South Carolina.

Owner David Tepper and Panthers Charities announced the donations in a news release Thursday.

The package includes a $1 million donation to the American Red Cross, $450,000 to regional food banks through 25,000 emergency food packs, as well as aid to high school athletic programs affected by storm damage.

The Panthers staff and players will engage in direct service projects for impacted areas.

The team is also spearheading and coordinating an effort with college football programs in North and South Carolina to unveil a special “One Carolina” helmet sticker to be worn during games on Saturday. Panthers players will wear the sticker during Sunday’s home game against Cincinnati.
