Chiefs Embrace NFL's 'My Cause My Cleats' Campaign
Sixteen Chiefs players are planning to participate in the NFL's 'My Cause My Cleats' initiative this weekend by wearing customized cleats that showcase and raise awareness for causes that are important to them. A significant portion of the footwear will be auctioned off following the game at NFL Auction, with proceeds benefitting the respective causes. Information about the foundations represented can be found at Chiefs.com/mycausemycleats.
My Cause My Cleats
Chiefs players reveal their passions beyond the game and wear their hearts on their feet through My Cause My Cleats. Players have the opportunity to pick a cause that is important to them and represent their chosen organization on custom designed cleats.
Chiefs Kingdom Food Drive Day
During the month of November, the Chiefs have made hunger relief a key focus of the organization's outreach efforts. Through a partnership with Harvesters – Community Food Network, Hy-Vee and CommunityAmerica Credit Union, the club can help provide food donations to benefit local families in need. CommunityAmerica Credit Union and Hy-Vee both provided $10,000 in support to kick off the Chiefs Kingdom Food Drive. Sunday's game will also serve as the Chiefs Kingdom Food Drive. New this year, all Chiefs Kingdom Food Drive donations at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium will be monetary only – no boxed or canned food items will be collected outside the stadium gates. Fans attending the game are encouraged to donate to the Chiefs Kingdom Food Drive by scanning the QR code displayed by volunteers as they enter stadium gates. Fans who are not attending Sunday's game, or fans who wish to make a monetary donation to the Food Drive prior to or following Sunday's game can visit www.chiefs.com/fooddrive.

The Chiefs introduced the GEHA Deck in 2019 as the home for two gameday traditions – the Drum Honoree and the Tony DiPardo Spirit Leader. Former Chiefs defensive end Jared Allen will serve as this week's Drum Honoree while Dave Herdman, representing Harvesters – Community Food Network in conjunction with the Kingdom Food Drive, will be the game's Tony DiPardo Spirit Leader.
Lamar Hunt Legacy Seat
To help celebrate the franchise's 60th season in 2019, the Kansas City Chiefs introduced the Lamar Hunt Legacy seat at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium. For each home game, the club selected one honoree who embodied the spirit of Lamar Hunt and represents the four pillars of the Chiefs Mission: Win with Character, Unite our Community, Inspire our Fans and Honor Tradition. After being forced to skip the recognition due to reduced capacity in 2020, the club is now using the Lamar Hunt Legacy Seat to specifically honor a Chiefs Season Ticket Member at each home game. The two gold seats are located in Section 121 of the lower bowl, symbolically positioned under Lamar Hunt's name in the team's Ring of Honor.
This week's Lamar Hunt Legacy Seat honoree is 38-year Season Ticket Member Janet Elliot. Elliot and her husband work year-round to give back to the community by collecting over 500 toys and coats to donate to children during each holiday season.
