The DICK’S Sporting Goods Foundation is pledging $1,000,000 for a Sports Matter recovery fund that will support the rebuilding of sports programs in areas affected by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.  The funding will go to supporting projects that enable or inspire sports participation, knowing that sports teams can be the kindling for rebuilding communities in the aftermath of natural disasters.
