Cargo Services client Haynes International partnered with the NFL Indianapolis Colts, Department of Child Services and CSI last week to host Books for Youth. This statewide philanthropic program is designed to support Hoosier foster youth by providing each child 25 age appropriate books in a Colts backpack.
This is the second year in a row Haynes International has hosted an event for Kokokomo-area foster youth. Now in its eighth year, Books for Youth provides foster children in Indiana backpacks filled with 25 age-appropriate books. To date, the Books for Youth team has collected more than 800,000 books for this program and distributed more than 7,500 backpacks to foster children in Indiana. The 2014 Books for Youth program spokesman is Colts Punter #1 Pat McAfee.
Cargo Services thanks Haynes and its team members for their time and dedication to this program.
