EAST ST. LOUIS (KPLR)- The Rams football season may just be getting underway, but that's not stopping the organization from its other passion of charity work.  The organization made a big play Wednesday off the field  when it teamed up to feed seniors in East St.  Louis.

Since the Rams started its “Staff Day of Service” program in 2009, team employees have provided more than 11,000 hours of community service to local non-profits in the bi-state region. This month’s Staff Day of Service follows the team’s visit to the Florissant Valley and Natural Bridge locations of the St. Louis County Library in July where Rams employees distributed free lunches and meal kits to children in partnership with St. Louis County Library and Operation Food Search.
