Colts, Department of Child Services, Cargo Services, Inc. to host "Books for Youth" Drive

Posted Sep 11, 2013

Limited Edition Bookmark for Fans who Donate at September 15 Game



INDIANAPOLIS – On Sunday, September 15, the Colts will team up with “Books for Youth” title sponsor Cargo Services, Inc. and Indiana Department of Child Services to host a book drive prior to the Colts vs. Dolphins game. From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., volunteers will collect donations from Colts fans to benefit the “Books for Youth” program. Fans are encouraged to donate new or gently used books for children birth to 18 years old. Donations will be collected at the Colts Community Collection Stations, presented by Toyota, located outside each Lucas Oil Stadium gate. 

 

Fans who donate on Sunday will receive a limited edition bookmark, while supplies last. Monetary donations will also be accepted. 

 

The “Books for Youth” program, which was started by the Indiana Department of Child Services and the Indianapolis Colts in 2006, provides Indiana foster youth with a backpack filled with 25 age-appropriate books. To date, more than 750,000 books have been collected and more than 7,000 backpacks have been distributed to children in foster care throughout the State of Indiana.

 

Throughout the year, Colts fans also are invited to support ”Books for Youth” through the Buy One, Donate One program. For each special edition BLUE backpack purchased at the Colts Pro Shop, one is donated to the program and distributed to an Indiana foster child. Visit www.colts.com/booksforyouth for details or to purchase a blue or pink backpack online.

The Colts Gameday Collections program will continue to run throughout the 2013 season with a different charitable collection held prior to each home game. Upcoming collections include WTHR’s Coats for Kids and WISH TV’s Toy Drive benefiting The Salvation Army and Meijer’s Sacking Hunger Food Drive benefiting Gleaners Food Bank. A complete list of future collections is available at www.colts.com/collections.

 

About Books for Youth

The “Books for Youth” program was officially launched in 2006 through a partnership between the Indianapolis Colts and DCS with the goal of placing a backpack filled with 25 age-appropriate books in the hands of every Indiana foster child. The statewide initiative was created after Steve Pemberton, a former foster child, shared his story of personal triumph over situational tragedy crediting a gift from a stranger – a box of books - as his motivation to overcome challenges and provide hope for his future.

 

Books for Youth title sponsor Cargo Services Inc., one of the only Indiana-based owned and operated freight forwarding companies, has sponsored the program since 2009. At any given time, there are 10,000 children in Indiana’s foster care system.
