Indianapolis Colts partner with American Family Insurance for Colts Community Tuesday

Bring "School Uniform Blitz" shopping experience to local school

The Indianapolis Colts kicked off the regular season and Colts Community Tuesdays on September 14 by partnering with American Family Insurance for a “School Uniform Blitz” at Eleanor Skillen Elementary School #34, a school with a large number of students facing economic challenges.

Colts players took more than 350 students on a “shopping experience” in the school gym, where kids picked out their own outfit, provided by American Family Insurance.

Each student picked out a short-sleeved and a long-sleeved polo shirt, pants, a belt, socks and a toiletry kit, helping eliminate school clothing as a barrier to students getting to and staying in school.
