This Sunday, as the Colts prepare for their first game inside Lucas Oil Stadium, fans are encouraged to bring a new or gently used book to support the Books for Youth initiative.


Colts, Department of Child Services Collect Books for Indiana Foster Youth
INDIANAPOLIS – As the Colts take the field for the first time inside Lucas Oil Stadium this Sunday, volunteers will be located outside the stadium collecting books for Indiana foster youth.

Through their Books for Youth program, the Colts and the Indiana Department of Child have teamed up to provide every foster youth in Indiana with a personal library of 25 books each. Since the initiative's launch in 2006, we have collected more than 100,000 books; however an additional 250,000 books are needed in order to reach every Indiana foster child.

Please join us in supporting this effort by bringing a new or gently used book to the Colts vs. Bills game this Sunday. Volunteers will be collecting donations at the Colts Community Collection Stations located outside each Lucas Oil Stadium Gate from 4:00 – 8:00 p.m.

Fans not attending the game may also drop off their donation at any of the Colts Blue Friday events this year. Visit for a list of dates and locations.
