The Mets will host a hurricane relief drive at Citi Field next Tuesday through Thursday to aid those affected in Texas and Florida from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
The team will accept donations of food, toiletries, paper goods, cleaning supplies and diapers, and will then deliver them to the Houston Food Bank in southeast Texas and Mustard Seed, a community outreach group in Florida.
The Mets spent Sept. 1 helping victims from Hurricane Harvey when they were in Houston for a series against the Astros. Instead of playing a game that Friday, the teams instead had a doubleheader on Sept. 2 so they could provide relief efforts in the community.
"We did what we thought was right," catcher Travis d'Arnaud said. "The bigger helpers were the people in that community."
Citi Field also hosted a three-game series this week between the Tampa Bay Rays and New York Yankees due to Hurricane Irma.
