ReutersLast night, we pointed out that the Chiefs have organized relief efforts for the folks affected by the devastating tornado in Joplin, Missouri on Sunday. The Colts have gotten involved, too.
From 2:00 p.m. through 7:00 p.m. local time on Tuesday, the Colts will conduct a drive-through effort to collect water, diapers, and donations at the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center in Indianapolis. Items accepted include cases of bottled water, packages of new, unused disposable diapers, and cash or checks made payable to the Red Cross of Greater Indianapolis.
Colts owner Jim Irsay will donate 15,000 bottles of water. The first 250 donors will receive a limited edition Colts football bearing the “laser signature” of Jim Caldwell.
The owner of Lucas Oil Products, which has the naming rights on the stadium in which the Colts play, will donate an 18-wheeler for transportation of the goods to Joplin.
