The Jacksonville Jaguars are selling an Aplington-Parkersburg Falcons Tornado Relief hat on their team's web site to help raise money for tornado relief efforts in Parkersburg, Iowa. Parkersburg is the home area of Jaguars center Brad Meester, as well as Packers DE Aaron Kampman, Lions DE Jared DeVries and Broncos C Casey Wiegmann.
All four players played at Aplington-Parkersburg High School, which along with hundreds of homes and businesses was leveled by the May 25 tornado. Proceeds from the hats will be distributed to the Parkersburg Relief Fund by Meester when he returns to Iowa next week.
The Jaguars are also selling the hats on Friday and Saturday at their mini-camp, and many Jaguars players and coaches will be wearing the hats during practices. The hats cost $20. To purchase one online, click here.
Contributions can be made to the Parkersburg Relief Fund by making a check payable to LSB Foundation Parkersburg Relief Fund and sent to LSB (Lincoln Savings Bank) Foundation, 242 Tower Park Drive, Waterloo, Iowa, 50701.
