Chiefs Eric Berry Continues Community Work During Rehab

The Kansas City Chiefs have maintained a strong connection with the greater KC community as they draft players with solid character and encourage helping those less fortunate as much as possible. Yet even outside of Kansas City, players like safety Eric Berry continue to impact the world outside of football by using their ties and position to help causes close to their heart.

For Berry specifically, a recent article at NFL.com on players’ volunteerism highlighted Berry’s work to restore an old football field he used to play on in Georgia. Berry has his own Eric Berry Foundation that focuses on children’s environments, so it was the perfect project to focus on.

Lisa Altobelli writes, “With his foundation’s funding and his connections with AstroTurf, a new state of the art field is being constructed sans any possibility of weeds, followed by a three-phase reconstruction project to restore the rest of the park.”

“While he’s been rehabbing a torn ACL he suffered in the first game this season, he’s still involved in community efforts, serving as the spokesman for Big Brothers Big Sisters Kansas City, and hopes to refurbish more parks through his mission ‘to create places where kids can just be kids.’”
