Dwayne Allen, local groups help kids find creative side

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Colts tight end Dwayne Allen is teaming up with two local groups to help Indianapolis children channel their creative side.

A group of young people got to design their own t-shirts and see the winning design printed on Wednesday.

The group Dream Alive sponsored a contest for kids to come up with creative shirt designs. Dream Alive was founded by former Colts player Tarik Glenn, to encourage 7th–12th graders to become leaders.

On Wednesday, Allen spent time with them at MainGate Corporate headquarters on Rockville Road.

Allen was with them as they got to see a dream design come to life.

“Just the joy of being able to serve them and see them having an impactful experience like coming to MainGate and seeing something, experience something outside of their comfort zone and outside of what they see everyday,” Allen said.

Dream Alive encourages kids to become leaders by involving them in activities that focus on character, community, and college and career readiness.
