Jim Harbaugh wore his trademark black fleece sweater and khaki pants, but he made a slight change to his headgear on Friday at City Hall as he helped FedEx donate a disaster relief unit to The Salvation Army and the city of San Francisco.
Harbaugh was still wearing a black hat like he does on the sidelines on Sundays, only the 49ers logo had been replaced by one for The Salvation Army. Harbaugh gave a speech and even got busy in the disaster relief unit, a mobile van that is designed to feed people after natural disasters. The $100,000 disaster relief unit is capable of feeding up to 2,500 people a day and will be made available to the needy as well.
“I hope there’s no disaster,” Harbaugh told 95.7 The Game. “But in the meantime, it will daily and weekly feed people in our community. It was neat to be asked to be involved and I was honored to be there.”
Following his speech, Harbaugh jumped in the van himself and put together some meals, while also taking part in FedEx’s additional $10,000 donation to the Salvation Army. The 49ers coach said he enjoyed the teamwork shared between FedEx and the Salvation Army, calling them “two great teams.”
“It’s just a neat deal,” Harbaugh told KNBR. “There’s a perception out there that nobody’s doing anybody any favors and that nobody is going out of the way for anybody in this day and age. But it’s kind of heartwarming to see that, if you just look around, that there’s a lot of these kinds of things going on and people are on each other’s side.
“You’re on my side, I’m on your side – that kind of attitude, that kind of mentality is the best thing for us in the country.”
