JOPLIN, MO. - Chiefs players and club members were in town for exterior work on five homes in the tornado damaged area.
Chiefs fan Linda Hazley lost her home in the tornado. Now the Chiefs are helping her move into a new one, sitting in an area some are calling the Chiefs neighborhood.
"These people have heart and they don't even live here," Hazley says.
The Chiefs will h elp rebuild five homes from the ground-up. It's rewarding for them to see excitement in homeowners like Hazley.
"She's thrilled to be here and see her house going up," Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt says. "She's been giving us some pointers as we've been doing it."
This isn't the first time the Chiefs have contributed to the Joplin recovery. The club and fans have raised over $250,000 to support the city. They also held a water and supply drive and a lead a clean-up visit last summer.
Hazley appreciates their commitment here.
"Our town was destroyed and these people have the heart to help us rebuild," she says. "That is very important."
This is part of the Governor's Joplin-Habitat Challenge for Missouri sports teams to rebuild 35 homes in Joplin.
The Habitat for Humanity workers say the Rams will come next.
