Raiders coach Jack Del Rio's foundation will once again use a trip to Mexico City for some philanthropy.

Del Rio's wife, Linda, and daughter, Lauren, will distribute backpacks filled with Raiders-themed items and school supplies to needy children on Saturday, the day before the Raiders take on the New England Patriots in their second game in Mexico City in two years.

Raiders alumni including Hall of Famers Fred Biletnikoff and Willie Brown will then hold a clinic for the kids.
