Travis Kelce Helps Save Kansas City Resident's Home of Over 56 Years
The Kansas City Chiefs tight end, 34, recently helped rebuild longtime resident Gloria White’s home after the elderly former athlete’s house fell into disrepair.
Kelce’s foundation, 87 & Running, donated enough money to the Rebuilding Together Kansas City organization to fund the repairs needed at White’s eastern Kansas City home, local outlet KSHB 41 reported this week.
“When we looked at her home, we realized there were lots of other things she needed — a new roof, she needed gutters, she needed safety latches on the doors, she needed work in the bathroom and kitchen," Scott Hickox, the Rebuilding Together Kansas City executive director

Once Kelce and his foundation found out, Hickox said the NFL star donated enough money to the organization to cover the repair costs.
“For Travis to care enough and his foundation to care enough about his community and what’s happening in Kansas City, this meant the world he could partner with us," -Hickox
Kelce, whose romance with Taylor Swift has been the talk of the NFL season, had found out about White and her house through former Chiefs player Otis Taylor, who is married to one of White’s relatives
