Briefly: Colts Community Tuesdays, presented by WTHR Channel 13, is a season-long outreach program in which players participate in activities every Tuesday.
The Indianapolis Colts are passionate about volunteerism and activate their players and staff each year to support numerous important causes, including literacy, holiday assistance and hunger relief. Presented by WTHR Channel 13, Colts Community Tuesdays occur every Tuesday during the regular season to support the team’s community initiatives. Using their only day off from practice, Colts players take time to give back to various non-profit organizations across Indiana. From school and hospital visits to beautification projects, Colts players, cheerleaders, staff and team mascot Blue take the time to volunteer and share joy with those in need.
