INDIANAPOLIS – Indianapolis area Taco Bell Restaurants will team up for the sixth year with the Indianapolis Colts to sponsor "Touchdown for Teens Paper Horseshoes," a fundraiser benefiting The Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Indiana. Beginning December 2rd, all Indianapolis, Evansville and Terre Haute area Taco Bell locations will sell paper Horseshoes for $1. All net proceeds from the $1 dollar contributions will be donated on behalf of Taco Bell to various Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Indiana. Since 2003, this program has helped raised about $217,000 to benefit the local Boys and Girls Clubs. Taco Bell is hoping to help increase this to at least $270,000 this year with your support.

Taco Bell is also teaming up with the Indianapolis Colts to sponsor "Touchdown for Teens In-Arena."  Throughout the 2009 season, Taco Bell will donate $100 for every touchdown the Colts score.  One hundred percent of the net profits will go toward various Boys & Girls Clubs in Central Indiana.  Since 2005, the Colts have scored 216 touchdowns. This means that Taco Bell has donated $21,600 to local Boys & Girls Clubs just from this program.

"Taco Bell is excited to sponsor Touchdown for Teens In-Arena promotion," said Charlie Brown, local Taco Bell franchise owner. "For every Touchdown the Colts make, Taco Bell will donate $100 to help kids at the Boys & Girls Club of Indianapolis. We're all hoping to see a lot of touchdowns this season!"

For both above programs and a local canister program, Taco Bell is proud to have raise over $350,000 to support the local Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Indiana.
