The star players of the Kansas City Chiefs continue to do good in the community amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
First, Tyreek Hill donated 6,000 meals to the Harvesters Community Food Network in Kansas City. The food bank helps provide meals across 26 counties spanning Kansas and Missouri. Hill took to Twitter and challenged his teammates to do the same.
Travis Kelce took Hill up on that challenge, donating 12,000 meals to Harvesters. Now, Patrick Mahomes has joined in to help the Kansas City community. In addition to donating 15,000 meals for Harvesters, the 15 and the Mahomies Foundation is committing $100,000 in aid to Kansas City Public Schools lunch programs and local organizations that provide household items to those in need.
