On Wednesday, December 18, IMPD officers and civilian employees hope the experience they provide to 36 lucky youth and families will be one they will never forget. The IMPD Clothe-a-Child program has been providing a memorable experience and holiday assistance to hundreds of Indy families since it’s establishment over 35 years ago.

IMPD officers and civilian employees raises the funds necessary to provide clothes, toys and more to youth from all six (6) of IMPD’s service districts.

“Of course, we love being able to provide a little extra holiday cheer to families in need,” said IMPD Deputy Chief Josh Barker. “However, the goal of the IMPD Clothe-a-Child program is to continue building positive relationships between youth and police.”

This year, IMPD has set out to raise the $20,000 necessary to provide this experience to the children and families selected this year. These funds come from private donations made by individuals and businesses interested in supporting the program.

It costs approximately $500 per child and through the Indy Public Safety Foundation, IMPD needs your help. To make a tax-deductible contribution to support IMPD’s Clothe-a-Child efforts this year, please complete the secure donation form below.
