A new web series documents Tyrann Mathieu’s charitable work in New Orleans.
There’s no denying that Tyrann Mathieu has settled in quickly as a leader both on and off the field for the Kansas City Chiefs ever since he signed with the team just over a year ago. However, the man they call “The Landlord” is also continuing to invest in his home of New Orleans, Louisiana with important civic work by extending a help to those who need it most.
Through a new web series via Bleacher Report and partnership with Zelle, Mathieu is paying for one month’s rent for four different families in the region with Zelle matching his donation. That means that each of the families profiled on the series on “The Landlord” series will receive two months of rent free.
The first episode is up now (see above) and features a family in need due to economic strife from COVID-19. A single mother of three has been given limited hours and then was recently furloughed due to working in a hospitality industry devastated by the lack of tourists from shelter-in-place measures implemented for the coronavirus. In the video, Mathieu, who turned 28 years old last month, meets the mother and her children and surprises her with the news.
Mathieu, who went to St. Augustine High School in New Orleans, has been a vocal leader and class act (as well as dynamic performer) since he first arrived in K.C. and it’s a joy to see news like this during a stressful season. Hats off to all parties involved for making this work and we can’t wait to see the next few installments of The Landlord continuing to further his legacy.
