June is a busy month at School on Wheels. Not only are we already planning for the next school year AND getting ready for our summer program that begins June 19, but we also have a ton of different things happening that will support and spread the word about the kids we serve in Indianapolis! Want to help? Read on to learn more about everything that’s going on this month!

1. Sunday, June 11: Off to Summer Camp!
Sleep-away summer camp is an experience that every child should have. That’s why we’re excited that ten of our Barton Center students will be headed off to Happy Hollow Summer Camp on Sunday, June 11. We hope that our students have a fantastic time – but first, we need to make sure they have everything they need! Help support our students by making a donation of must-have items to make camp a success:

bug spray
small flashlights with batteries
$25 gift cards to Walmart

10 of each item are needed. You can also check out our Amazon wishlist. Our kids thank you for your support!

2. Thursday, June 15: RUN(317) Broad Ripple 5K
IMG_5190For the third year in a row, we’re thrilled to be the charity for RUN(317)’s Broad Ripple 5K! Though the race is already completely sold out, we are still in need of over 50 volunteers to help make the race a success. There are tons of great positions available, including packet pick-up, runner services, ID check, and more. You also get a pretty awesome t-shirt and free beer if you’re 21! Sign up today or contact Amber Ewing, Director of Development, at amber@indysow.org for more information.
