Titans to honor Chattanooga victims during Sunday game, donate $25K

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The Tennessee Titans will honor the five young children and their classmates during their game against the Chicago Bear this Sunday.

The team said Wednesday their uniforms will include a special decal that says “W.E.S.” for Woodmore Elementary School.

The Titans Foundation is also donating $25,000 to the Woodmore Fund to help the families impacted by the tragedy.

“We were stunned and saddened to hear the news of the young lives lost in the school bus crash in Chattanooga earlier this week,” said Titans controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk. “We know the state of Tennessee and the Chattanooga community will rally around those families and we want to do our part to honor and help those involved in this tragedy.”

“I prayed for them as soon as I heard the news,’’ receiver Harry Douglas said. “You pray for those families and you pray for those people. It is so sad because you put your kids on the school bus and think they are going to be safe and come back home.
