Sam Sharpe-US PRESSWIRE

On Monday, Rick Fuson, COO at Indiana Pacers Sports and Entertainment, announced that the Indiana Pacers, the WNBA Champion Indiana Fever, as well as the Indianapolis Colts, have put together a $20,000 donation to the American Red Cross. The donation by the organizations was an effort to help assist the families who have been affected by a massive house explosion in Indianapolis late Saturday night.

Two people perished on Saturday night, when a house explosion on the south side of Indianapolis shook the Circle City. The reason of the explosion is still unknown, but the results have been shocking and tragic. The boom from the explosion came out just a few minutes after 11pm on Saturday night, and could be heard and felt for miles around. Following the eruption, 36 homes were critically damaged, and over 50 homes were affected. The city, the Indiana Pacers, and the Indianapolis Colts, have all came together to assist in the relief efforts.

Things such as this tend to supersede sports, especially in a situation where explanations have not yet been offered. The fact that these franchises have bonded together for their community is another sign that this city and community has a deep connection to their sports teams. People from all around the city, including players from these teams, have come out to help in the effort to clean up what remains of this south side neighborhood. The reasons may still be unknown for this tragedy, but the results are already noticeable for a city that has pulled together to help the people who have been left homeless from these shocking occurrences.
