Just one week after signing a free agent deal with Kansas City, tight end Kevin Boss headed off to the remote village of Pignon, Haiti with a suitcase full of Chiefs gear. Extra pairs of cleats, tennis shoes, sandals and athletic gear also filled Boss’ bags.
Boss’ trip was inspired by his good friends Denny and Abby Bain, founders of the non-profit organization LovingHaiti.org. Titans LB Tim Shaw joined Boss on the visit as well.
The island nation of Haiti suffered a catastrophic magnitude 7.0 M earthquake in January of 2010 with an epicenter hitting 16 miles west of Port-au-Prince, Haiti’s capital. The quake claimed an estimated 300,000 lives with thousands more dying from disease in the months following the disaster.
