Steelers among NFL teams donating money to Mexico City earthquake relief

The Steelers, Patriots, Raiders and Cowboys are contributing a total of $250,000 to Mexico City earthquake relief efforts to support disaster relief efforts.

A 7.1-magnitude earthquake struck central Mexico on Sept. 19, killing 369 people, according to the Associated Press. The money donated by the NFL teams will be used to help rebuild homes affected by the earthquake in and around Mexico City.

The Steelers have a big fan base in Mexico. They played a preseason game in Mexico City in 2000 and are expected to play a regular-season game there soon. They also have a Spanish radio network.
