INDIANAPOLIS – The Indianapolis Colts and the Indiana Pacers have teamed up to donate $20,000 to the American Red Cross to help those affected on the Southside by this weekend’s disaster.

Both teams encourage their fans to contribute to the Red Cross and help those in need in Central Indiana.

"Colts fans are Pacers fans and Pacers fans are Colts fans," said Colts owner Jim Irsay. "Both Herb and I share a deep love of our community and we thought it was appropriate and the right thing to do."

"I have great respect for Jim and consider him a great friend," said Pacers owner Herb Simon. "When we see our fellow citizens in need, we need to step up."
