Kansas City Chiefs offer help around the holidays

Denny Medley-US PRESSWIRE

The Kansas City Chiefs helped feed 2,000 local families for the holidays.

The Kansas City Chiefs teamed up with Derrick Thomas and Neil Smith Third and Long Foundation on Tuesday to help feed 2,000 local families.

Members of the Chiefs Community Caring Team, which includes Chiefs players, Cheerleaders and Red Coaters joined volunteers from the Third and Long Foundation to distribute baskets of food those in need throughout Kansas City.

Members of the Chiefs organization as well as players have funded the annual Chiefs Thanksgiving Food Distribution event since 1992. The program has fed 16,500 families since starting the initiative.

The Red Coaters and volunteers arrived at the stadium on Tuesday morning to place the food items in the bags. Chiefs players took the bags and distributed them to the families in the afternoon. The bags contained a turkey, vegetables, eggs, canned food and perishables.

Dexter McCluster, Terrance Copper and Steve Maneri were among the Chiefs players who donated their time to help the cause.
