Panthers Steve Smith Pledges $100K to Theater Shooting Victims


Good look by the Steve Smith.

Panthers receiver Steve Smith announced today that he will give $100,000 to the city of Aurora, Colorado, which will distribute it to victims of last week’s theater shooting to offset their medical expenses.

“As a father and husband I cannot imagine the pain and suffering the victims are going through,” Smith said in a statement distributed by his agent. “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.”

“Hopefully this helps a little bit,” Smith said. “From one NFL city to another, God bless.”

While it isn’t required I hope others follow Smith’s footsteps.
