OXNARD, Calif. (AP) The Dallas Cowboys are donating $50,000 to a fund for victims of the mass shooting that killed 22 people and left about two dozen others injured in El Paso, Texas.
The team said Wednesday the NFL Foundation was planning a matching donation to the El Paso Community Foundation Victims Fund. Cowboys executive vice president Charlotte Jones Anderson is chairwoman of the NFL Foundation.
The Cowboys have had community outreach programs for years in El Paso, the far West Texas city with a large contingent of Dallas fans. Owner Jerry Jones said earlier in the week the team is so appreciative of the support we have in El Paso.
