To commemorate Veteran's Day, several Colts players joined forces with fifth graders at Stephen Collins Foster School #67 to assemble and deliver care packages to veteran patients at the Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center in Indianapolis on Tuesday, November 9.
The day began with a visit from Colts players Cody Glenn and Anthony Gonzalez to School #67, where the players and students discussed the importance of our military personnel and decorated 200 footballs with messages of thanks to be delivered to the VA Medical Center.
Colts players Andre Brown, Jordan Hemby, and Brandon King also spent their day off honoring the veterans. These players, with the help of four fifth graders from Stephan Collins Foster School #67, personally delivered the decorated footballs to patients' rooms at the VA Medical Center. While delivering the care packages, the players signed autographs, gave thanks to our wounded warriors for their service, and helped to boost the morale of the patients.
