JJ Redick donates $100K to help feed residents in recovery from Hurricane Ida
His departure from New Orleans did not go the way he planned.
In fact, JJ Redick expressed his disappointment and dissatisfaction with management of the New Orleans Pelicans after being traded to Dallas, rather than to a northeast team, which he had requested and hoped for.
Still, Redick has sound principles and remains supportive of the city and region he played in for two seasons.
Redick and his wife Chelsea are contributing $100,000 to Second Harvest New Orleans to assist with the recovery from Hurricane Ida.
Chelsea and I are also contributing 100k to Second Harvest New Orleans to assist w/ Hurricane Ida recovery. If you’d like to learn more and help provide immediate needs in Southern Louisiana go to https://t.co/lESvwbmXtu https://t.co/HecR6r2yBV

The money will go to help feed those in the region in need.
