The Indianapolis Colts, along with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans, made a joint donation of $100,000 to the Houston/Harris County Winter Storm Relief Fund, the team announced Wednesday.
In an effort to help those impacted by the 2021 winter storms that hit the country last week, the AFC South teams were joined in a match donation by NFL Foundations, which brings the total donation to $200,000.
“While we regularly square off against our division rivals on Sundays in the fall, some things are bigger than football, and now is one of those times,” said Colts Owner & CEO Jim Irsay in a statement. “The Colts are happy and proud to join with the Jaguars and Titans organizations as well as the NFL Foundation to assist our NFL family in Houston that is facing enormous challenges right now. All of us here in Indianapolis are thinking of and praying for the Houston community and others throughout Texas who have been impacted.”
This isn’t all that unprecedented. The AFC South did the same thing in 2020 when Nashville was hit by a tornado.
