As the international community attempts to put together rescue and relief efforts for Haiti in the aftermath of yesterday’s catastrophic earthquake, the Yankees are adding their money to the pot. The team donated $500,000 rescue and relief efforts. “The catastrophic event has devastated an entire nation and will have far-reaching effects in the worldwide Haitian community,” the team said in a statement. “The Yankees hope their donation will inspire people throughout the United States to do everything they can to aid the people of Haiti in their time of need.” Earlier today, The Times had more on how to donate for those who want to help.
