For a second straight year, Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee gifted one of the coolest gifts you’ll see – paying off the electricity bills for 115 families in need in the Indianapolis area.
Totaling around $20,000 of his own money each year, McAfee pays for the bills via customers of IPL Power:

One of the customers who benefited from McAfee’s generosity shared her story with FOX59:
On Friday afternoon, 58-year-old Valerie Moore got a phone call from a friend who told her someone was paying off people’s utility bills. Moore dropped everything and drove over to the IPL office.
“All I could do was throw my hands up in the air and just give her the bill,” said Moore.
Moore had a nearly $400 bill with a disconnection notice set for Dec. 27. …
Once Moore learned the generous stranger was Pat McAfee she told FOX59 she’s always been a Colts fan but she’ll be cheering a little louder for McAfee from now on.
