Royals lend a hand in Joplin

Here are a few of the many pictures that team photographer Chris Vleisides sent us from the Governor’s Joplin Challenge.  To learn more about this Habitat for Humanity project, visit 

Royals Hall of Famer John Mayberry

The project was a change of pace for some associates (below).  For Rick Bobki (above), it had some similarities to his regular day at Kauffman Stadium.  Bobki is the team’s lead carpenter.

Willie Aikens and Assistant GM Dean Taylor work to finish their siding project.

Here’s a group photo of Royals associates, alumni, staff from the Northwest Arkansas Naturals and Habitat for Humanity.  Two of the homes that the group worked on are in the background.
