Colts, Meijer Support Local Food Banks
INDIANAPOLIS – With donation levels at several Central Indiana food banks lower than needed to fulfill the requests in this challenging economy, the Indianapolis Colts and Meijer have teamed up to lend a hand through their SACKing Hunger Campaign. Through this campaign, the Colts and Meijer will host their third annual SACKing Hunger Food Drive at Lucas Oil Stadium prior to kickoff of the Colts vs. Texans game on Sunday, November 16.

From 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. volunteers will be collecting canned and other non-perishable food items at the Colts Community Collection Stations located outside each Lucas Oil Stadium gate. Each fan who donates at the game will receive a limited edition Colts poster featuring members of the Colts Defensive Line, while supplies last. Cash donations will also be accepted. All proceeds from the food drive will benefit Gleaners Food Bank in Indianapolis, Ind.

Beginning Tuesday, November 11, fans not attending the game will also have an opportunity to receive a poster when they visit one of nine (9) Central Indiana Meijer locations and purchase a $10 Food Pantry Donation Card. The card will be converted into a Meijer gift card and donated to one of several pre-selected Indiana food pantries. Customers who purchase a donation card can show their proof of purchase to the greeters as they exit the store to receive a copy of the limited edition Colts poster, while supplies last.

"We are pleased to continue our annual tradition of supporting hunger relief initiatives by encouraging our fans to join our team and help us sack hunger this holiday season," said Nicole Duncan, Indianapolis Colts executive director of community relations.
