Bears pitch in for storm victims

Posted: Updated:

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) - The Chicago Bears continue to pitch in to help storm victims in Illinois.

The team, working with the Red Cross, is collecting money and auctioning game-used equipment from last week's game against the Baltimore Ravens at Soldier Field on its website. The Bears will match donations and auction proceeds dollar for dollar up to $100,000.

Chicago was hosting the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday when deadly storms and tornados hit Illinois. Six people died in the state.

On Tuesday, kicker Robbie Gould led a group of current and former players helping in Coal City, Ill. On Wednesday, coach Marc Trestman and guard Kyle Long wore T-shirts to show solidarity for Washington Community High, a school from a hard-hit central Illinois town playing in a state semifinal.
