Indianapolis Cultural Trail hosted over 120 FFA volunteers to clean the eight mile Indianapolis Cultural Trail: A Legacy of Gene and Marilyn Glick during their National Days of Service taking place this week during the FFA Convention in downtown Indianapolis.  FFA volunteers on the Cultural Trail worked on: picking up litter, removing graffiti, cleaning benches, bollards, lights and other Trail materials including Pacers Bikeshare stations.

“We’re thrilled to host the FFA volunteers on the Cultural Trail and be a part of the FFA National Days of Service this year”, said ICT, Inc. Executive Director, Kären Haley.  “The FFA participants use the Trail daily as they explore downtown Indianapolis so it’s exciting to see them give back and leave a legacy of community service in our beautiful public spaces.”

In total 120 FFA students volunteered on the Cultural Trail last week, each serving a four hour shift, contributing almost 500 hours in community service to the Cultural Trail.  40 FFA students spent time on the Trail on Monday with an additional 80 students volunteering on Thursday, October 20th.
