Panthers receiver Steve Smith donates $100,000 to Colorado shooting victims
Carolina Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith is giving $100,000 to help survivors of the movie-theater shooting in Colorado pay for their medical expenses.
Smith has no connection to the victims of the July 20 shooting that left 12 people dead and 58 injured – other than as a parent and husband.
“As a father and husband I cannot imagine the pain and suffering the victims are going through,” Smith said in a release Thursday. “My family’s hearts and prayers are extended to theirs, and I hope this contribution might assist in paying some of the medical bills that will help allow these families to move forward in this tragic circumstance.”
Smith’s donation will go to the city of Aurora, which will distribute it to families in need.
