Dallas Cowboys
The Dallas Cowboys announced Wednesday that the team will be donating $50,000 to the El Paso Community Foundation Victims’ Fund, which was launched to help provide assistance to families affected by the recent mass shooting.

The team said it would be making the donation along with the Gene and Jerry Jones Family Foundation. The team also noted in its announcement that the NFL Foundation would also be donating another $50,000 to the fund.

“Our hearts and support are with the entire El Paso community and especially with the families of the victims of this very tragic event,” Cowboys Executive Charlotte Jones Anderson, who also chairs the NFL Foundation, said in a statement.

“Our organization has long enjoyed a wonderful following from the people of El Paso, and our wish is that so many others in Texas and around the country will be inspired to assist the loved ones who are grieving,” she continued.

More than 20 people were killed Saturday morning after a gunman opened fire at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas.

The suspect behind the shooting has been identified as a 21-year-old white male from Texas that has been linked to racist and anti-immigrant writings that appeared online prior to the attack.
