A Kansas City couple is hosting a Super Bowl watch party for the city’s homeless. In 2020, Ryan and Laci McClelland hosted a Super Bowl watch party and invited the area’s homeless residents to come and enjoy the big game. They wanted to do it again the next year, but COVID put a damper on their plans.
This weekend, the McClellands are teaming up with Morning Glory Ministries to host another watch party for Super Bowl LVII. “This year, with the Chiefs back on the big stage, we didn’t even think twice,” they say. “Instead of traveling to Arizona, we’re using those funds to host another Gold Dome Super Bowl Party for KC’s homeless to watch the biggest game of the year.”
The watch party will feature a huge projection screen and will be catered with BBQ and dessert offerings. They’ll also be giving out free haircuts and will have a raffle to give out prizes to attendees. The McClellands say with more than 17-hundred homeless residents in Greater Kansas City on any given night, it’s important to make them feel a part of the community and they add, “We want to give everyone, no matter their circumstance, a safe and friendly atmosphere to enjoy Super Bowl Sunday.”
