June 24, 2014 Josam Company will host 30 Northern Indiana Foster Children in conjunction with the 2014 “Books for Youth” kickoff event sponsored by the Indianapolis Colts and Cargo Services. The event is by invitation and not open to the public.
Books for Youth is in its 8th year and provides backpacks filled with 25 age-appropriate books in Colts backpacks to Foster Children. To date “Books for Youth” has collected more than 800,000 books and distributed 7,500 backpacks to Foster Children in Indiana.
Tuesday June 24th, the Colts Traveling Museum will be at Josam along with the Colts Cheerleaders and Mascot, Blue. From 12:30 to 1:30 Foster Children and their families will go through the “museum”, visit with the cheerleaders, get their autographs, play interactive games and see skits put on by the Mascot, Blue. After the activities, backpacks filled with books personally selected for the kids will be distributed.
For hosting the event, employees and families of Josam have been invited to participate from 11:30 to 12:30. If you have a family member who could bring your children during that hour, they are welcome. Employees can participate on their lunch break. We hope everyone enjoys the event.
