Big Car Collaborative, the recipient of a residual grant of $4,250 in 2014, recently gave us an update on what impact our grant had on their organization.
Fun Fleet reached 300 kids on the Far Eastside and International Marketplace last summer! They traveled with the Indianapolis Public Library’s Bookmobile to 10 apartment complexes for 8 weeks and made new friends at every stop.
Fun Fleet participants are from diverse backgrounds—69% African-American, 29% Latino, 1% white, and 1% other race—and most come from low-income households, with varying levels of exposure to art. They loved collaborating with them to learn about their neighborhood and to support their creativity.
Jim Walker of Big Car Collaborative commented that Fun Fleet was only possible through the support of Impact 100.
