    Travis Kelce Is Trying To ‘Figure Out’ How To Help The Victims Of Kansas Shooting After $100k Donation

    Though the Chiefs celebrated one of the best years of their career, the aftermath of the Super Bowl victory was a rather horrid one. As the players participated in a parade with hundreds of fans, a shooting took place, leaving 22 injured and one dead.

    Post-incident, Travis Kelce is looking for ways to help the victims of the tragedy, along with making a big donation.

    As a swift act of generosity, Travis Kelce has donated an amount of $100K to two sisters who are victims of the shooting. Set up by the Reyes family, they were seeking funds for the treatment of their two daughters who were wounded in the incident.

    Travis has donated the money under his charity’s name ’87 and Running’. A source spoke to Page Six about it and said, “Travis has a really big soft spot for kids and wanted to make sure their families were taken care of and were supported with whatever they needed.”

    The Reyes family set a goal of $100,000, so thanks to Kelce’s financial assistance, they have already reached and will likely exceed their goal.

    On Thursday, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and his wife Brittany Mahomes paid the young girls a special visit at Children’s Mercy hospital in Missouri.

    The Chiefs tight end is looking for more ways to support the victims and their families who suffered during the shooting.

    A source said, “Travis is trying to process everything that has happened, as is everyone in the Chiefs community. He is actively trying to find out specifically what the victims’ needs are, and where he can help the most. He wants to ensure that the impacted families get what they need during this difficult time.”

    Another source spoke to ET about it and said, “Travis is a passionate man with a big heart,” the source told ET. “He loves and respects his teammates and profession, and takes football very seriously. He also loves Kansas City, and is heartbroken by what has happened.”

    The source added, “The Super Bowl win was meant to bring unity and light to the city, and it’s been overshadowed by the horrible events that took place. The hope is for the city to heal, and for the fans and community to continue to stand united during this difficult time.”

    Additionally, Kelce’s girlfriend Taylor Swift has also donated $100K towards a victim of the shooting.
