ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – The St. Louis Rams rookie class joined cheerleaders and staff in traveling to Joplin on Friday to help rebuilding efforts after last year’s devastating tornado.

Rams rookies and staff was divided into four teams. Three of the teams will focus on raising the walls for their assigned home. The units are part of a “Rams neighborhood,” which will be built from Rams support and through the volunteer efforts of Rams players, staff and fans.

The fourth team will assist with landscaping and other projects in support of the challenge.

This makes the Rams second trip to Joplin. Last year the Rams organization traveled to Joplin to assist with disaster relief efforts, six weeks after the devastating F-5 tornado ripped through the town.
