By: Donna Metallic As we enter the Holiday Season IDO would like to share a wonderful opportunity that you could get involved in this year. At IDO We Care about our community and those who need a little help this season to make it brighter. “Pack the Pantries’ is an annual event that is committed to support Mayor Ballard’s citywide food initiative. Please join in our efforts to assist those less fortunate by filling a few boxes for the DPW truck with NON-PERISHABLE food items to be donated to Gleaners and Midwest Food Bank. This annual food collection drive sponsored by the City of Indianapolis will culminate December 10th. We have a box located at our office and you may bring by your donation anytime during business hours until December 10th! Well you don’t have time to drop in then you can send in a check. Financial donations are tax-deductible! To donate, make your check payable to: Greater Indianapolis Progress Committee Memo: Pack the Pantries Mayor’s Office 200 E. Washington, Suite 2501 Indianapolis, IN 46204 On December 4, 2014 IDO will participate in the annual We Care event at the Lilly Boys and Girls Club, located on the near east side of Indianapolis. We will be creating take home holiday crafts with about 125-150 local kids. Thanks to OfficeWorks for setting up this wonderful event for the design community to give back and especially for letting these kids feel special during this most magical season. We hope that our little bit of giving and sharing will inspire you to get out there and make a difference this season. Together we can make a difference!
