22 Nov Colts Defensive Backs Have Tradition Of Giving Back At Thanksgiving
The holidays are all about family and traditions.
And a football team is no different.
“We’re a family,” said safety Darius Butler. “The Colts have always done a great job of helping in the community and being a part of it. We just want to keep that going.”
One of the ways they do that is by creating traditions of their own.
Former Colts safety Mike Adams had a vision – to bring Thanksgiving to families on the Near Eastside of Indianapolis. So, he gathered some food, gathered some teammates, and hit the streets – blessing families without with everything they needed for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner.
Adams is no longer a Colt, but his tradition lives on.
On Tuesday night, the Colts defensive backs gathered at Edna Martin Christian Center, where they distributed Thanksgiving dinners to families in the neighboring community.
