Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has committed to donating to the fund supporting families of the victims of last week's shooting of military personnel in Chattanooga, Senator Bob Corker (R., Tenn.) said on Tuesday.
Corker announced Manning's contribution during a speech on the Senate floor.
"Peyton Manning has lent his name to this effort, and my sense is you're going to see a generous outpouring to ensure that at a base level some of the needs of these families, if not all financially, will be dealt with in an appropriate way," Corker said.
Manning, who went to University of Tennessee and lives in Chattanooga for part of the year, also visited military personnel and police officers on Saturday at the Naval Marine Corps Reserve Center, the site where four Marines and a Navy sailor were shot and killed by Mohammad Abdulazeez.
