The Houston Astros organization continues to do their part in helping the citizens of Houston and surrounding areas get through the coronavirus pandemic. They have launched a Houston Together T-shirt campaign with net proceeds from sales going directly to the Astros Foundation and it's COVID-19 relief efforts.
The T-shirt is available through Astros.com/Together for $25.
Astros Owner and Chairman, Jim Crane and his wife Whitney Crane, has been a very vital part of getting the Astros Foundation involved in helping our city during these rough times. They have been involved in numerous projects such as donating $400,000 worth of critical medical supplies and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to Houston's Texas Medical Center, the delivery of meals to medical workers and first responders, the co-hosting of a PPE drive at Minute Maid Park, and the honoring of healthcare workers at the stadium.
Astros All-Star third-baseman, Alex Bregman’s FEEDHOU campaign received a $100,000 donation from the Astros Foundation to benefit the Houston Food Bank. He set an original goal of $1 million, which was surpassed within a week and is now just above $1.5 million and working towards a new goal of $2 million.
The Astros Foundation and Crane Worldwide Logistics are also covering 100% of the freight and transportation costs, as well as coordinating the logistics to get the much-needed medical supplies to Puerto Rico. That effort was in conjunction and help from Carlos and Daniella Correa and Martin and Janelise Maldonado along with other Puerto Rican born players to assists with the COVID-19 pandemic.
