INDIANAPOLIS – On Sunday, November 30, the Colts teamed up with Damar Services to host the Damar Services Sporting Goods for Kids Collection prior to the Colts vs. Redskins game. Volunteers collected new and gently used sports equipment from Colts fans for Damar Services.
All sports equipment donated will benefit the children and adults served by Damar Services, which for nearly 50 years has served people challenged by autism and intellectual, developmental and behavioral disabilities.
Along with sports equipment, cash was also collected – raising nearly $2,000 for Damar Services. A COLTSTRONG thank you goes out to all those who gave at this year's Damar Services Sporting Goods for Kids Collection.
The Colts Gameday Collections program will continue to run throughout the 2014 season with a different charitable collection held prior to each home game. This season's final collection will take place on December 14th with the WISH Tree Toy Drive. For more information, visit www.colts.com/collections.
