KANSAS CITY -- The Royals are doing their part to help residents of Moore, Okla., who were affected by the tornado on Monday. Royals Charities donated $10,000 to Heart to Heart International, an emergency response organization based in Olathe, Kan.

They also partnered with the American Red Cross for a fund-raising campaign during the Angels series to support relief efforts. The Red Cross will coordinate in-stadium fundraising during the series through Sunday.

Money will be collected through 50/50 Raffles and cash donations. Fans can donate by texting REDCROSS to 90999, visiting www.redcross.org or calling 1-800-REDCROSS.
