Chicago Bears players volunteer after tornadoes

Posted: Updated:

COAL CITY, Ill (AP) - Members of the Chicago Bears were in tornado-damaged parts of Illinois offering help.

Players Robbie Gould, Blake Costanzo and Zack Bowman were in Coal City on Tuesday. They volunteered at a local church before heading out to visit storm-damaged neighborhoods. The Bears were playing the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday at Soldier Field when the game was postponed as the deadly storms moved across Illinois. Six people died in the state.

Gould says the storm damage is "heartbreaking" and the team wants to help the community. Team members walked through neighborhoods stopping at homes and talking with residents. They also unloaded donated water from trucks.
