The Buffalo Bills and partners are donating $137,000 to the American Red Cross following the recent snowstorm that paralyzed much of western New York.

The team said Friday that owners Kim and Terry Pegula have pledged $50,000. The NFL Foundation is also pledging $50,000, plus another $12,000 it generated in a fundraiser during the Bills "home" game against the New York Jets on Nov. 24. The game was relocated to Detroit because of the storm that dumped more than 6 feet of snow on the region.

A raffle conducted during the game raised an additional $25,000.

Kim Pegula credited the community for rallying together and thanked the NFL and Detroit Lions for their support during the region's time of need.
