Indy Do Day is a people-powered community day of service when the residents of Indianapolis take ownership of their neighborhoods and take care of their neighbors. Indy Do Day is September 29, 30 and October 1, 2016.
Indy Do Day hosted an informational booth at Feast of Lanterns on Saturday, August 27. On the early morning of Monday, August 29, a volunteer’s vehicle (a 1999 pewter Chevy Silverado) was stolen, which included the Indy Do Day booth supplies. Included in the supplies were banners, tablecloths, displays and 200 frisbees.
All materials included the Indy Do Day logo and were important elements to promote Indy Do Day, an initiative to engage 20,000 residents of Central Indiana in volunteering at over 200 locations on September 29, 30 and October 1. The value of the stolen goods is just over $1,000, but more important is the lost opportunity to promote Indy Do Day to the community at upcoming events.
If anyone has any information about the stolen truck or materials, please contact the Rotary Club of Indianapolis office at 317-631-3733.
Of particular concern to event organizers is that names and emails of almost 100 individuals who attended the Feast of Lanterns and expressed interest in Indy Do Day was lost. We ask those individuals who expressed interest in Indy Do Day that afternoon to log into our website, www.indydoday.org to sign up for more information so we can be sure to send you more details.
