How to help football players after money stolen in Central Toledo

Posted: Updated:
Lot of people are asking how to help a Toledo youth football team after money was stolen from the kids Tuesday. 

It happened at a carryout at Detroit and Nebraska in Central Toledo.  The kids say they were just trying to help pay for some basics for their football team like water bottles and footballs. 

Players for the Colts of the South Toledo Area Recreation Society had been collecting in jars for the past few days, including Tuesday morning when a young man came up to them with money in his hand.  Instead of dropping the money in, the person grabbed the jar and took off.  That thief was tracked to some homes near Detroit and Hawley, when the jar was dumped but the money was gone.    

If you want to help, call Coach Green at 419-418-1048.  Or visit the Colts Stars League on Facebook
