COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROGRAMS
HEALTH & WELLNESS
The Kansas City Chiefs remain committed to the health and wellness of the entire Chiefs Kingdom. That spirit is epitomized through the organization’s various Chiefs Play 60 outreach activities which generated an estimated 2.5 million minutes of activity. Beginning with the 30,000+ area youth visiting the Chiefs Sports Lab Powered by Blue KC last year and continuing through the thousands of other individuals that participated in some of the team’s other Play 60 programming, the organization strives to spread its health and wellness messaging to children throughout the Midwest.
FAMILIES IN CRISIS
The Kansas City Chiefs strive to uplift those dealing adversity, especially children and families in crisis. One of the most identifiable areas are those that are food insecure. In our region, 375,000 individuals are unsure of where their next meal is coming from. Through initiatives including the Chiefs Thanksgiving Food Distribution, Souper Bowl of Caring, Harvester’s BackSnack program, Lift Up America and Operation Breakthrough, countless members of the Chiefs Kingdom received much-needed nourishment on an annual basis.
The Kansas City Chiefs recognize its responsibility as a civic leader throughout the Chiefs Kingdom. Be it helping our neighbors in Joplin to recover and rebuild following the devastating tornadoes, supporting military members, veterans and their families both locally and world-wide, thanking public servants and first responders for their sacrifices or encouraging the next generation to experience the arts through the newly implemented and still growing Arrowhead Art Program, the organization strives to lead by its example.
Founded by Lamar Hunt prior to its inaugural season in 1960, the Kansas City Chiefs have a strong sense of community outreach exemplified by Hunt. Two of the flagship programs initiated by Hunt and continued on by the entire Hunt family are the annual Chiefs Charity Game, which has raised nearly $4.5 million the past nine years alone, and the Hunt Family Foundation. Together, these vital outreach resources continue to make a mark throughout the Chiefs Kingdom.
