Hundreds help with projects for ‘Indy Do Day’

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — People from all over the city of Indianapolis are getting together for “Indy Do Day”.

This annual event brings hundreds out for community service projects and it was already underway early Thursday morning.

It’s a day to make a difference in the city. The first event starts at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. Organizations have prepared to head out to the city and perform their various projects. The overall idea is to be a people-powered day of service where the residents of Indianapolis take ownership of their neighborhoods and take care of their neighbors.

For example, Indiana is among the top ten states for injury and death due to home fires, so hundreds of Lilly volunteers are partnering with the American Red Cross and Indianapolis Fire Department to install free smoke alarms in Indianapolis neighborhoods.

Also the organization Keep Indianapolis Beautiful will help some organizations with beautification projects including painting murals, planting trees in an effort to transform Indy’s public spaces. And all that is going on before noon..

There will be plenty to do all day and for the next couple of days. If you still want to get involved go to IndyDoDay.org for info and to register.
