Safety Adonis Alexander, whose father was born on the island, traveled on the plane to personally deliver the goods.

"This is the only team I've seen doing it," Alexander told Redskins.com. "So, it's just a blessing. I feel like it's a great look for the organization; they're taking care of people in need, not just us."

Dorian, identified as a Category 5 hurricane (the highest a hurricane can get), made landfall on the Bahamas earlier this month. The death total has reached 50, with over 15,000 in need of food and water, according to Redskins.com.
