The Mets will be partnering with Queens Borough President Melinda Katz to hold a Hurricane Relief Drive next week at Citi Field to help those affected in Houston and Florida.

The Mets will be accepting donations at Citi Field next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (September 19-21) from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. in front of the Jackie Robinson Rotunda.

Fans driving to the ballpark can enter via the Official Lot G on 126th street and proceed straight to the fire lane in front of the Rotunda. Mets staff will be on hand to unload items from vehicles.

Donations will be delivered to the Houston Food Bank, which provides 800,000 meals a year in southeast Texas, and Mustard Seed, a community outreach organization serving Fort Pierce, Florida.

Mets COO Jeff Wilpon said, “Mets fans and all New Yorkers want to help the Hurricane victims in Texas and Florida just like the rest of the country helped us pull through Superstorm Sandy."

Queens Borough President Melinda Katz said, "Mets fans and people throughout Queens and the entire New York metropolitan area have not forgotten how the rest of the country supported us in the wake of Sandy. That's why we want to give back to those who have suffered due to Harvey and Irma. This hurricane relief donation drive we are hosting with the Mets at Citi Field will be a great opportunity for New Yorkers to help our fellow Americans who are in need."

The following items are in need by both communities and will be accepted at the drive:
· Canned ready-to-eat items with pull tops: vegetables, fruit
· Protein in pouches or pull-top cans: tuna, beef stew, chili, canned chicken
· Peanut butter
· Snacks: granola bars, breakfast bars, etc.
