Making a Difference, One Student at a Time

Many high school students feel doubt that they have the financial means, necessary support system or educational ability to attend college and complete a four-year degree. LINC partnered with Starfish Initiative to help reach their goal of "filling empty caps and gowns."

Indy Do-Gooders Plant It Forward

Flanner House, a United Way Agency, located in northwest Indianapolis, is in the state’s largest food desert. This means that access to affordable, nutritious food is scarce -- a huge problem for the 22,000 people who call this area home. On May 8, local millennial philanthropists from United Way’s LINC program, created garden boxes for Flanner Working Farm’s Community Garden to provide members of the neighborhood with free fresh produce. Neighbors can expect to harvest from the garden beds within the next few months. LINC’s “hands on” efforts will allow residents of the area to enjoy the benefits of nutritious food options while becoming one step closer to self-sufficiency.

LINC Gets IndyVolved

LINC members knows many low-income families do not have access to grade-appropriate stories to encourage kids to read. Our solution? Create Little Free Libraries and build community, spark creativity and inspire young readers – all while increasing access to the books that kids love. Anyone who stopped by the LINC corner at the 12th Annual IndyHub, IndyVolved, could help us decorate and stuff the libraries. Visitors had the chance to pick a book and write an encouraging message to a young reader. We left these notes inside the pages for little readers to find as they dive into a new book. Our fully decorated and stuffed Little Free Libraries will be donated to United Way partner agencies.

“I’ve lived in northwest Indianapolis my whole life and I am so excited to see that there are events like this that will improve the health and quality of life of the great people who live in this area. This is a great thing for us."
