MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Miami Dolphins safety Michael Thomas, who was born in Houston and has family there, has helped to organize a relief effort for Hurricane Harvey flood victims in his hometown.

Thomas said Tuesday night on Twitter that South Floridians can drop off relief supplies at Hard Rock Stadium, the home of the Dolphins. In those tweets he said fans can begin showing up at Gate 4 at 10 a.m. Wednesday.

"Doesn't matter the color of your skin. Doesn't matter how much money you make, your status or nothing like that," Thomas said after Monday's practice in Davie. "When we're going through something like this, this is when people really help each other, and if it could be like this all the time then the world would be a better place."

Thomas also tweeted that relief supplies can be mailed to 1865 Aldine Bender Road, Houston, TX 77032.
