Over the past couple of weeks we’ve worked with numerous partners to meet the needs of survivors of recent storms, tornados and flooding in various parts of the U.S. We wanted to take the time to offer a special “thank you” to the National Football Leagues Players’ Association for the work they have done in Joplin, Mo. following the destructive storms last month. Numerous NFL players have visited survivors of the storms and toured the damages throughout Joplin. They have also helped in getting the word out to register for assistance (like the video above).
We are committed to serving those impacted by the storms and would like to thank the entire emergency management team for their continuous hard work and dedication to the recovery efforts in Missouri. From first responders, to local/state government, to our partners in the private sector, including the NFL Players’ Association, we appreciate all that you have and will continue to do.
