The Saban’s are widely respected amongst the world of sports and beyond and it’s because of actions similar to those they conducted on Wednesday.

In the past, the Saban family has done a tremendous amount of work to help those in need. From funding a local children’s center to starting the non-profit Nick’s Kids Foundation which is committed to helping children, families and teachers in the community, there have been countless lives aided over the years.
Back in March, the Sabans also donated a significant amount of money to the United Way’s community crisis fund amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
“Of the many challenges our country has faced in recent years, the COVID-19 virus worldwide pandemic may be the most significant,” said Saban during a PSA. “We are all in this together, and together, we can fight this invisible enemy by respecting social distancing and being diligent. Through our Nick’s Kids Foundation, Miss Terry and I are committed to helping families in the state of Alabama recover from the many obstacles created by this crisis.
“We have made a significant contribution, earmarked for the United Way community crisis fund. This fund has been established statewide specifically to give relief, including food, shelter and basic life needs. Call the 211 hotline and specify your needs caused by the impact of COVID-19. You will be considered for help through this community crisis fund. If you would like to donate, visit NicksKidsFoundation.org. God bless you all and Roll Tide.”
