KC Chiefs Head To Joplin To Build 'Chiefs Neighborhood'

The Kansas City Chiefs OTAs and minicamps are done and the players now just await training camp.

Except the "work" isn't quite done yet.

The Chiefs front office, coaches and players will make their way to Joplin for another day in the tornado recovery and rebuilding efforts. This will be part of Governor Jay Nixon's Joplin-Habitat Challenge which hopes to build 35 houses with the assistance of the major sports teams in the state.

The Chiefs are building five homes in a 'Chiefs Neighborhood' in Joplin with Habitat for Humanity's assistance. You'd be hard-pressed to find a cooler name for a neighborhood than a 'Chiefs Neighborhood'. That's awesome.

For the story behind at least one family that will be living in this 'Chiefs Neighborhood', check out this story.

Speaking today will be owner Clark Hunt, GM Scott Pioli and team president Mark Donovan, as well as other players. (And KC Wolf!)

From my count, this is the fifth major event the Chiefs have been involved with regarding Joplin's rebuild efforts. There was the water and supply collection shortly after the tornado, the team's visit there this time last year (during the lockout), raising money at the Governor's Cup and the Joplin high school game at Arrowhead, among others.
