The Kansas City Chiefs confirmed additional plans to assist in the Joplin tornado relief effort. All club members including executives, front office staff, coaches and players have been invited to participate in an all-day cleanup event June 23 in Joplin. Team officials will take part in an early morning cleanup session followed by a tour of the impacted area and a visit to Hope Station where players, coaches and executives will sign autographs and interact with community members.


“The Chiefs family is committed to assisting our friends and neighbors in Joplin as they continue on the long road to recovery. We look forward to joining together as an organization to aid in the relief efforts later this month and hopefully, lift the spirits of those who are hurting,” said Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt.

In support of two communities that have been devastated by these recent events, fans and friends in the Kansas City area and beyond have bonded together to make a difference in Joplin and Reading. In a two-day supply drive held at Arrowhead Stadium recently, fans generously filled nearly seven semi-trailers full of water bottles and other supplies needed as well as financial contributions supporting recovery efforts in both Kansas and Missouri.
