It's easy to lose hope with today's current events, however, Kansas City Chiefs players donating to families and youth who are in need right now is providing us with some light at the end of the tunnel. Tyreek Hill, a Kansas City Chiefs player often referred to as "Cheetah," partnered with Harvesters to donate hundreds of meals to those who are being impacted severely impacted by the coronavirus.
In an Instagram post earlier this month, Hill challenged other Kansas City Chiefs players to follow suit, and the results are incredible.
This weekend, the Kansas City Chiefs Twitter account tweeted photos of both current and former KCC players participating in charity work.
It looks like Hill's actions had a major impact on them, and it's easy to see why!
Families and youth who are now without their free breakfast and lunch programs are struggling now more than ever. Thanks to Hill and his fellow Chiefs, they can let out a collective sigh of relief.
As of now, a total of 63,000 meals have been donated! It's incredible the difference one person can make on a community, and Chiefs fans everywhere are prouder than ever to call KCC their team.
Chief Kingdom is encouraged to donate as well, as mentioned in Hill's Instagram post earlier this month.
The post above is what started it all with Hill's caption challenging specific players.
Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce, Demarcus Robinson, Gehrig Dieter, Tyrann Mathieu, Chris Jones, and Frank Clark were all challenged by Hill to donate.
The Kansas City Chiefs tweeted yesterday, "In response to the challenges many in Chiefs Kingdom face as a result of COVID-19, our current and former players have made contributions to Harvesters and its network of agencies that provide meals to families in need."
According to a tweet by NFLPA, not only has a total of 63,000 meals been donated but a foundation run by Mahomes, 15 and the Mahomies, is pledging one-hundred-thousand dollars to Kansas City public school lunch programs.
It's incredible the difference this Super Bowl-winning team is making!
