Thousands of people are expected to roll up their sleeves and volunteer in Indianapolis over the next three days.
Kelly Tingle, executive director of the Rotary Club of Indianapolis, says Indy Do Day is a community service initiative that allows Hoosiers to take ownership of their neighborhoods.
“Celebrating all the good being done in Indianapolis and inspiring even more good,” Tingle says.
Thursday, is the first of three Indy Do Days. Last year, more than 23,000 residents took part to create an impact of more than $1.3 million to area nonprofits.
This year, the goal is 30,000 people getting involved.
“Thirty thousand might be a stretch goal, but I believe in Indianapolis and the power of good and certainly feel the energy will be felt out there, and I think we are going to make it,” says Tingle.
Indy Do Day was launched in 2013 and was developed by a coalition of area businesses and organizations looking to inspire change.
More information, including a listing of hundreds of open volunteer opportunities, is available on the Indy Do Day website.
