Chiefs help with Sandy relief

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Superstorm Sandy may seem like a memory already to people in the Midwest, but the recovery is still a reality for those on the East Coast.

But local athletes are still offering help.

While the Chiefs are currently not much of a team on the field lately, they are still doing good work off the field.

Several players and cheerleaders got together Tuesday to organize supplies that Heart to Heart International will deliver to the victims of Superstorm Sandy.

The Chiefs Community Caring team packed individual bags full of necessary hygiene items, like washcloths, soap, toothpaste and so on.

It's the second effort the Chiefs have taken on in response to Sandy. Earlier this month, they held a locker room clothing drive.

Those participating said they're happy to help.

"I'm blessed to be able to have a house, go to work every day with no problem, no issues , I don't give back for the public eye, I give back from the bottom of my heart," Defensive Tackle Shaun Smith said.

The Chiefs and Heart to Heart have worked together on other disasters in the past, like in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the earthquakes in Haiti and Japan and the tornado in Joplin.
