The Kansas City Chiefs will take a break from their Minicamp responsibilities on Friday to visit Joplin, Missouri, a city and community still recovering from an EF-5 tornado last year that destroyed over 7,000 residences.
Chiefs players will assist in the "Joplin-Habitat Challenge,"which features members of the Royals, Cardinals and Rams each helping to build homes in the area, as well as help from NASCAR drivers and the University of Missouri's student athletes.
"It was a big impact just to see those kids," WR Jonathan Baldwin remembered. "They were really excited to see us. To show our appreciation and that we actually care had a big impact on me."
Las season the Chiefs hosted a Joplin High School football game, as well as hosted several bottled water and relief supply drives at Arrowhead Stadium.
