KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Members of the Kansas City Chiefs are planning a return trip to Joplin to help with tornado relief efforts.
According to a post on KCChiefs.com , head coach Romeo Crennel will be joined by quarterback Matt Cassel, wide receiver/running back Dexter McCluster and the entire Chiefs 2012 rookie class when they head to Joplin when Organized Team Activities (OTAs) finish in June.
Cassel and McCluster were among a group of Chiefs volunteers who went to Joplin soon after last year’s tornado.
The Chiefs have also helped in tornado relief efforts by hosting a Joplin vs Raymore-Peculiar football game in October at Arrowhead Stadium.
In the days immediately following the May 22, 2011 twister, the Chiefs hosted a supply drive where they collected two trucks worth of items that were sent to Joplin.
If you’d like to volunteer in Joplin, you can call the Americorp Volunteer Line in Joplin at (417) 627-8883.
