Cincinnati Bengals Joining Relief Effort After Last Week's Storms

As we pointed out on Thursday, Fox 19 is putting together an all-day marathon on Friday, accepting donations to help storm victims from last Friday's storms. In the meantime several employees, including coaches and players, are joining the relief effort on Friday.

Defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer, cornerback Leon Hall, and middle linebacker Rey Maualuga plan to join several club employees when they are bused into the community at about 11 a.m. and spend the rest of the day working at various sites.

Also expected are the Hawkins brothers, wide receiver Andrew and former cornerback and current Fox Sports radio host Artrell.

The club is bringing along several dozens of boxes of sideline gear worn by players and coaches, such as waterproof winter jackets, sweat shirts, and pullovers.

Two of the Bengals' partners, Gold Star Chili and La Rosa's, are supplying hot food, just one of the staples the tornado took from the Ohio town less than a mile from the Ohio River. Gold Star is going to hand out 1,000 coneys and La Rosa's is going to be cooking pizza on site for the estimated 250 residents and 100 other volunteers. Another sponsor, Pepsi, is sending 25 cases of water.
