Let us introduce you to two of the 2023 grant recipients that you helped to support:
Mother Theodore Catholic Academies (MTCA)
These Catholic diocesan grade schools include Catholic Central, St. Phillip Neri, Holy Angles and Holy Cross, and serve families and children in some of the city’s under-served communities. Our grant helps to cover costs associated with the Better Student Health Program, which endeavors to help students to become more physically active. The funds will cover participation fees, uniforms, equipment, and league fees, and will impact 350 children.
IMPD Youth Mountain Bike Project (IMPDYMBP)
IMPDYMBP was established in 2015 by two IMPD bike patrol officers. The goals of the organization are to introduce urban youth mountain biking, build technical bike skills, build self-confidence and communication skills, to promote healthy living and to create respect for nature and utilization of Indy’s vast parks. Our grant will help cover expenses related to the development of new mountain bike trails in Washington Park in Indianapolis. The organization serves approximately 4000 youth annually.
So, thank you for participating in our St. Patrick’s Day festivities. As you can see, your celebration of Irish heritage helps to impact the lives of many children in our community. Look for more information coming about our other grant recipients in the near future.
