Ivy-Tech Indianapolis TRiO Upward Bound Day of Service
Students distributed the care packages to individuals driving near the local campus. During the intial distribution, community members were skeptical of the service offering. Many belived the students were soliciting and selling candy. Some thought the student were requesting money for a fund raiser. For those who stopped to listen to the student(s) about sharing acts of kindness. Recieved a care package which contained a $15 gift card and a personal messeage from the student. Many after looking within the package had a smile on their face. Seeing the joy both students and the community shared in this moment was completely impactful. Thank you to the wonderful staff and students of the Ivy Tech - Indianapolis TRiO Upward Bound Progarm for there participation!
