Orioles, Ravens make $10M donation after bridge collapse

Baltimore’s big-league franchises teamed up to donate $10 million in the wake of the Francis Scott Key Bridge collapse.

Major League Baseball’s Orioles and the NFL’s Ravens made the joint announcement Friday that they would make the donation to the Baltimore Community Foundation’s “Maryland Tough Baltimore Strong Key Bridge Fund.”

The fund is intended to provide financial support to the families of victims, port workers, first responders and others affected by the March 26 collapse of the Key Bridge in the Baltimore area.

“The resiliency of our city has once again been sorely tested,” new Orioles owner David M. Rubenstein said in a statement. “Under the leadership of Governor Wes Moore, and in collaboration with the Ravens, the Orioles offer this contribution to support those who keep our city, our state and our country in business.”

“Our heartfelt condolences are with the victims of this tragedy and their families,” Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said in a statement. “We are thankful to our first responders for their bravery and tireless work.

“The Ravens are honored to support the Francis Scott Key Bridge recovery efforts and affected Maryland families and businesses. We are confident that Baltimore and Maryland will keep displaying tremendous spirit and strength during this time of great need.”

The majority of the bridge collapsed when a container ship lost control and struck one of its piers. Six construction workers who were on the bridge at the time were declared or presumed dead, and two people were rescued from the river.
