If anyone is interested in helping the families of Dion Jordan and Jake Dunn, here are some ways to do so.

For those of you who have not heard, Chandler TE Dion Jordan was involved in an accident at his home this past weekend. Dion was badly burned and is currently in the Burn Center at Maricopa Medical Center. A lot of efforts have been made for Dion and Saguaro LB Jake Dunn to raise money and show support for the players and their families.
