Sponsoring Books for Youth for 15 years
This statewide Indiana program provides 25 age-appropriate books in backpacks to Hoosier foster youth, who have little to call their own. Books for Youth is a partnership with the Indiana Department of Child Services and the NFL Indianapolis Colts.
Colts General Manager Chris Ballard and his entire family join the Books for Youth team to support Hoosier foster youth. An adoptive family, the Ballards are passionate about their support for foster youth.
“Many of these kids have little to call their own. Study after study proves reading is a key to lifelong success. If we can give these kids something of their own that also provides an educational opportunity, we’re providing an experience to help move foster children toward a successful adulthood. We’re inviting Colts fans to join us, and make a donation to support of Hoosier foster children,” says Cargo Services co-owner and CFO Steve Fugate.
Project Open House
In conjunction with Books for Youth, the Cargo Services team sponsors Project Open House, an annual event hosted by the Indiana Department of Child Services and NFL Indianapolis Colts. This year was the seventh year Cargo Services and the Colts have come together to celebrate the success of Indiana’s foster youth graduating high school.
Congratulations to each of this year’s high school graduates!
