WASHINGTON — The Washington Redskins have stepped up big in providing relief to Caribbean countries ravaged by Hurricane Matthew.

Over the weekend, Redskins owner Daniel Snyder sent his private plane, Redskins One — loaded with goods — to the Bahamas.

On Sunday, after Washington’s 16-10 win over the Ravens, Snyder decided he would send receiver Pierre Garcon and defensive lineman Ricky Jean Francois — both of Haitian decent — to Haiti with relief supplies. They arrived Monday morning.

NBC News reports the death toll in Haiti has climbed to over 1,000, and doctors have warned the island nation could now be facing a cholera crisis.
