INDIANAPOLIS – On Sunday, October 22nd, the Colts will team up with CENTURY 21 Scheetz to host a "High Five, Give Five" cash collection prior to the Colts vs. Jaguars game. From 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., volunteers will be accepting donations to benefit Dayspring Center. Donations will be collected at the Colts Community Collection Stations, presented by Toyota, located outside each Lucas Oil Stadium gate.
All donations will benefit Dayspring Center, an organization that provides emergency shelter, clothing and three nourishing meals-a-day for homeless families with children in central Indiana. Families turn to Dayspring Center as a last resort; some to escape domestic abuse, others have experienced financial collapse, medical problems or crises that caused them to lose their home. Fans who donate on Sunday will receive a #highfivegivefive wristband.
"We are honored to partner with Dayspring Center to help families living in the worst of circumstances find relief, food, and shelter. We love our communities in which we live and work. We want to give you a High 5 for Giving $5 at Sunday's game! Your donations will provide immediate support for the 4,000 homeless children in Indy," says Tracy Hutton, President, CENTURY 21 Scheetz.
On any given night, more than 4,000 children are homeless in Indianapolis. The "High Five, Give Five" collection will help Dayspring Center serve these children. To learn more about Dayspring Center and their services, visit www.dayspringindy.org.
Fans are also encouraged to show support for the Colts Gameday Collection Program by utilizing social media. Fans may tag @ColtsCommunity on Twitter and Instagram and 'Colts in the Community' on Facebook.
The Colts Gameday Collections program will continue to run throughout the 2017 season with a different charitable collection held prior to each home game. Upcoming collections include SACKing hunger, collecting canned goods and perishable items, and the Angel Tree Toy Collection.
