Chiefs Help with Cleanup From Tornado in Joplin, Missouri

Four bus loads of players, coaches, executives, and front office staffers from the Chiefs were in Joplin, Missouri Thursday to help with the cleanup following a tornado that devastated the area on May 22.

“The Chiefs family is committed to assisting our friends and neighbors in Joplin as they continue on the long road to recovery,” Chiefs owner Clark Hunt said in a statement released in advance of the visit. “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.”

According to The Joplin Globe, players on hand included quarterback Matt Cassel, wide receiver Dexter McCluster, safety Reshard Langford, linebacker Andy Studebaker, and 2011 draft choices Rodney Hudson, Shane Bannon, and first-round wide receiver Jonathan Baldwin.
