Houston Dynamo and MLS donate $1 million to Hurricane Harvey relief

Erick Torres scored two late goals to give the Houston Dynamo a share of the points in a thrilling 3-3 draw against FC Dallas.

The Houston Dynamo have led Major League Soccer's efforts in donating at least $1 million to the American Red Cross' relief efforts after Hurricane Harvey.

The Dynamo and their NWSL counterpart, the Houston Dash, are joining with MLS, its community outreach initiative MLS WORKS and other clubs to provide aid.

"Our organization strongly believes in its responsibility to be a community leader in times of need," Dynamo and Dash owner Gabriel Brener said in a statement. "We are here to support people throughout the relief and recovery effort by initiating a number of efforts."

MLS WORKS will also be coordinating league-wide efforts on informing fans on how to donate as well.

New England Revolution owner Robert Kraft and Atlanta United owner Arthur Blank have both said they will match donations up to $1 million.

"Houston is a city the New England Revolution and our fans have shared many competitive moments with -- most notably the 2006 and 2007 MLS Cups against the Houston Dynamo," Kraft said in a statement.

"We are eager to provide our support and hope by matching donations we will encourage more people to give to help ease the recovery of our displaced neighbors. And we wish all of our friends at the Houston Dynamo and their fans the best during this time of need."

The Dynamo postponed their home game against Sporting Kansas City last weekend as the storm was poised to affect the Houston area.

The MLS team is training this week in Frisco, Texas, the home of rivals FC Dallas, while the Dash will play their NWSL game at Toyota Stadium on Sunday.

The Dynamo's BBVA Compass Stadium has been turned into a donation center, and defender Dylan Remick helped volunteer this week before the team left for Frisco.

He told the Houston Chronicle that two of his teammates could not get out of their homes in time to immediately join the team, but that all players were reported safe.

J.J. Watt of the NFL's Houston Texans is also leading a fundraising campaign that has already raised over $14 million.
