Back-to-School Supply Drive

Hi all,

IFD is proudly participating in the Indy Back Pack Attack program.  The objective is to collect donations of school supplies for children attending IPS schools.  The drive is running from June 20 until July 17th.  As stated in his quarterly meeting on Monday and Tuesday – Chief Malone is asking that all IFD personnel make an effort to donate to this very worthy cause.  We all know how costly school supplies can be and for families on truly limited budgets, the choice between putting food on the table or sending a child to school with appropriate supplies is an awful choice to have to make.  Let’s help these kids off to a good start.

Encourage Friends and Family to contribute as well.

Please consider a personal, apparatus, shift, house or division donation.
