FOX59 Morning helps feed hungry Hoosiers thanks to our donors

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Thanks to big donations from our friends, we’re making great strides toward reaching our goal of raising enough money to fill every seat in Lucas Oil Stadium. That’s 65,000 seats!

The Colts and Blue came to FOX59 around 6:20 a.m. and presented a check for $1,500.

Scott also did a push-up challenge with several of the Colts cheerleaders.

A very generous viewer donated $1,000 to get Britt Baker to hold both a spider and a snake.

Our friends at Financial Center made a very generous donation—they gave us $3,000 to help us Pack the Pantries.

Ray Cortopassi and Jim O'Brien held a plank for a half hour! (Not really, but they tried.)

Our friends at the Pacers gave us a check for $1,000!

The Indianapolis Indians stopped by at 9 a.m. to donate $1,000!

We ended the morning with the dunk tank! Angela Ganote was supposed to take a dip, but a viewer generously donated $1,000 to get her out of it. Instead, Jim and Scott got soaked!

All day long, we will be holding challenges and contests to give you an extra incentive to call and donate. Our phone lines will be open until 7 p.m. The number to call is 317-493-2300.

You can also text to donate! To make a donation to Gleaners, text GIVE to 317-593-2400. To make a donation to Midwest Food Bank, text @MFBINDY to 52014.
