Chiefs players, coaches and front office personnel traveled to Joplin on Friday to help with the continuing cleanup from deadly tornados. Now the franchise is stepping up again, selling merchandise to further benefit relief efforts.
The team will be selling specially-designed baseball hats, cotton t-shirts and performance t-shirts. All net proceeds from sales will be donated to help victims of the tornados in Missouri and Kansas.
Supporters interested in purchasing disaster-relief merchandise can now order through the Chiefs Online Pro Shop at www.kcchiefs.com or the Chiefs Team Store beginning Friday, July 1.
There is a lot of venom being thrown owner Clark Hunt’s way lately (and many of it well deserved) but this is yet another move by the Chiefs that everyone can get behind. Bringing over 100 people from the franchise down to Joplin was a great decision and having them all wear gear that can be sold to raise money is even better.
I don’t know about you, but I’ll be ordering a Chiefs Community Caring Tee.
