David Spade has donated $100,000 to the American Red Cross for disaster relief, as the charity launches a large relief operation across 11 states to help people affected by the devastating tornado outbreak.
“I hope this will help to keep the focus on those in desperate need right now and that others will join me in donating what they can to support the widespread disaster relief efforts of the Red Cross,” said Spade.
Weather experts reported as many as 95 confirmed tornadoes touched down, destroying communities from the Great Lakes to the Southeast.
“David Spade has once again demonstrated selfless compassion and kindness to assist those in need,” the Red Cross said in a statement. “This generous contribution is vitally important as Red Cross continues to offer shelter, food, emotional support and relief supplies to the thousands of people devastated by disasters in America’s heartland.”
Spade made a similar donation to tornado relief last year.
