St. Louis Rams players to visit Joplin
Today, current and former football players of the St. Louis Rams will travel to Joplin, Mo., to deliver supplies to an American Red Cross shelter, tour the damage and meet with tornado survivors.
Accompanying them will be DeMaurice Smith, the executive director of the NFL Players Association. The group is scheduled to arrive in Joplin around 12:30 p.m. CDT.
The NFL Players Association is one of many groups from both the public and private sectors working with FEMA and state and local officials to help the disaster survivors and communities devastated by the tornadoes that struck the area last weekend.
