Bengals pitch in with tornado relief

Posted Mar 9, 2012

The Bengals are sending a contingent of about 35 employees and partners, as well as food and clothing, to the devastated Ohio River town of Moscow on Friday to help with the cleanup in the wake of last week's killer tornado.

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, sweatshirts and pullovers.

Two 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.

The Bengals are also bringing rakes and shovels from the Paul Brown Stadium grounds crew to aid the FEMA-led effort.

"We know the devastation is unbelievable and help is needed. Something like a hot meal right now just isn't possible," said Wade Martin, the Bengals assistant director of marketing. "We're giving back to the community that is a great supporter of us."
