Jaguars owner donates 1,000 playoff tickets to refugees, displaced citizens from Puerto Rico

Jaguars owner Shad Khan has made a kind gesture ahead of the team's playoff matchup against the Bills on Sunday.

He's donated 1,000 total tickets to refugees who've settled in Northwest Florida and displaced citizens from Puerto Rico.

From the Jaguars' official press release (via Jordan Ferrell):

"Shad Khan and the Jaguars Foundation have donated 500 tickets to Sunday's game to refugees from around the world who have settled in Northwest Florida. To identify these individuals, the Jaguars Foundation enlisted the support of Lutheran Social Services of Northeast Florida, which for more than 35 years has been aiding in the resettlement of refugees admitted to the United States due to dangerous political climates or natural disasters in their own countries.

Another 500 tickets have been donated to displaced Puerto Ricans and their families in communities throughout Jaguars territory in North and Central Florida."

Sunday marks the first postseason game in Jacksonville since January 23, 2000.
