KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) - The Kansas City Chiefs are collecting bottled water and contributing $35,000 to assist victims of devastating tornadoes in Reading, Kan., and Joplin, Mo.

The Chiefs are also teaming with the Salvation Army to collect financial donations for Heart-to-Heart International.

Team employees announced they would accept bottled-water donations at Arrowhead Stadium both Tuesday and Wednesday. Owner Clark Hunt, general manager Scott Pioli and other team officials planned to help load the trucks on Wednesday.

More than 100 people were killed in the tornado that hit Joplin on Sunday. Earlier, one man died and dozens of homes were destroyed in the eastern Kansas community of Reading.
