In an official announcement on Tuesday, the Jets said they have donated $1 million to four different organizations as the team continue's their efforts with social injustice, inclusion and diversity. 

The four organizations are All Stars Project, Innocence Project, New York Urban League and Year up, which the team says "all share the goal of reducing barriers and creating opportunities for individuals in need."

"We wanted to contribute to these organizations and help push our community forward," said Jets president Hymie Elhai. "It is our hope through these partnerships that we can positively affect the access, equity and rights of those in need."

Back in August, the Jets told the world via video that players and others within the organization were dedicated to affecting change in the community. In doing so, the Jets Social Justice, Diversity and Inclusion Team was created. This group, along with the rest of the team, will be looking to find other organizations that they can assist in the future.

But, for the holidays, this donation by the team is a big step in the right direction to helping make that change become a reality.
