LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- FedEx says it will reimburse the Iroquois High School Football team donation money that was stolen.

More than $2,000 was sent to the team from the Arizona Cardinals. The money came after the the NFL team saw pictures of the Louisville football players doing community service work. 

The money was supposed to help the young players go on college visits. 

But when it arrived, the coach noticed the money in the FedEx envelope was stolen.

FedEx released a statement Thursday night, saying:

"FedEx is reimbursing the football team and extends the best of luck to the team for a great season. We apologize for and regret the inconvenience the shipping issue caused."
