Global Youth Service Day

A young boy gets some goodies as he learns about childhood hunger in the Indianapolis area.

The Salvation Army kicked-off Global Youth Service Day and their Bite Back Brigade campaign with a special event at their headquarters. Adults and children alike were invited to stop by and learn more about childhood hunger and find out what they can do to help. They were also encouraged to bring non-perishable food items!  West Coast Tacos served lunch from the parking lot and K-LOVE Radio pumped out some inspirational tunes for the lunch crowd. Visitors could sign-up their children and/or youth groups for our Bite Back Brigade, enjoy free popcorn, help create Easter baskets for children at our shelter, take a photo with the Easter bunny, bounce around in our giant kettle bounce house, and drop off canned food and/or coupons.

Visitors could also pick-up our Easter package and find out how their Sunday school classes and/or youth groups can sacrifice to prevent suffering this Easter. All participating groups will have the chance to win a Kettle Bounce House party.

Sacrifice is the ultimate Easter message and that is why we are asking Greater Indianapolis area children, youth, and young adults to join the Bite Back Brigade and help alleviate childhood hunger during Global Youth Service Day (GYSD) weekend from Friday, 4/15 through Sunday, 4/17.
