The Minnesota Vikings and the Wilf family are pledging $100,000 to help with the recovery from Superstorm Sandy.

"Being from and living in the affected areas, our family has seen first-hand the destruction of Hurricane Sandy," said Vikings Owner/Chairman Zygi Wilf in a statement Friday. "As an organization, it is important for us to help raise awareness and support for those impacted by this disaster. Every contribution is critical to helping families and individuals in the region."

The funds will go to the American Red Cross and other local relief efforts in New Jersey and New York. The team is also encouraging fans to contribute to the Red Cross.
