While families across the country celebrated Easter in the safety of their own homes, Kansas City Chiefs star defensive end Frank Clark decided to make a difference in his community during the COVID-19 pandemic that has left many facing unthinkable circumstances of uncertainty.
Providing pizza, cleaning supplies, and hygiene products, Clark took it upon himself to make the holiday a happy day for members of the Skid Row community.
As a young boy, Clark spent time living in a homeless shelter in Skid Row, an area at the center of the homelessness crisis in Los Angeles. A scary reality of the COVID-19 pandemic is that most people living in such shelters are unable to practice social distancing and other public health guidelines due to the lack of resources available to them.
In a time where athletes have been called to support communities across the country, it's evident that the reigning Super Bowl champion has not forgotten the people from the place where his long journey to NFL stardom began.
