Blues Assist in Rebuilding Homes in Joplin
Bob Plager and 35 other St. Louis Blues, Scottrade Center or Peabody Opera House staff members traveled to Joplin to help rebuild homes.


ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Blues have partnered with Missouri sports teams and the Joplin Habitat for Humanity to build 35 homes for Joplin, MO tornado victims.

Former Blue Bob Plager and 35 members of the Blues, Scottrade Center and Peabody Opera House traveled to Joplin on July 25 in an effort to re-build homes.

"Our players, management and staff all understand the importance of re-building Joplin as quickly as possible," said Blues COO Bruce Affleck. "Whether it's a food drive, a clean-up or in this case a re-build, we understand that in our profession we can make a difference to the great people of Joplin. We also ask Blues fans to help support The Challenge."

The partnership was announced at halftime of the Missouri / Kansas basketball game on Feb. 4 at Mizzou Arena by Missouri Governor Jay Nixon, who was joined by Blues Hall of Famer Bernie Federko, St. Louis Rams wide receiver Danario Alexander, former St. Louis Cardinals’ pitcher Andy Benes, Kansas City Royals pitcher Aaron Crow, Kansas City Chiefs’ quarterback Matt Cassel, University of Missouri Athletic Director Mike Alden and Kansas Speedway president Patrick Warren.

The 35 homes will be divided into seven different neighborhoods, with each neighborhood assigned a sponsor from among the seven Missouri athletic organizations. Representatives from each organization will visit their neighborhood on several occasions to serve alongside volunteers and professional builders in assisting with the construction, including framing, siding, painting and landscaping.

Blues fans can contribute in support of the Challenge. For more information, visit joplinchallenge.mo.gov.
