Zionsville and Whitestown Boys & Girls Clubs - Computers and inflatable screenThe Boys & Girls Club of Boone County serves over 425 kids daily and 3,000 total members ages 5-18. In addition to daily programming, we offer sports leagues, summer camps, and community programs. We feed dinner to approximately 85 kids per day. The Boys & Girls Club is more than just an after-school program. Through purposeful programming, youth gain new skills, make lasting friendships, and build self-confidence. Our mission is to help area youth, especially those that need us most, develop the skills, fitness, and character they need to reach their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible citizens.
Zionsville Unit: New computers in our media center would allow us to teach youth valuable digital skills to learn about careers, help members with homework, and help prevent summer learning loss by equipping them with fun and engaging math and reading programs.
Whitestown Unit: We’d love to have an Inflatable movie screen, projector, and sound system to do evening summer time movies or teen movie nights outside for the community. During our Days of Kids Event to celebrate our youth, we’d add some inflatables, grill out and do ice-cream as well.
Humane Society for Boone County - Kennel doors and panelsThe Humane Society for Boone County is dedicated to the task of animal welfare, rescue and education. Almost entirely volunteer-operated, the shelter is remodeling to increase their facility’s capacity.
The Coolest Dog & Cat Contest is raising funds for kennel doors, plus panels that allow dogs to walk down aisles without seeing other dogs. And, possibly, other items to outfit the "catio"!
Riley Children's Foundation – Infant mortalityIndiana ranks 13th worst among U.S. states for infant mortality. Riley Children's Foundation plans to establish a Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialist Endowment to ensure that every mother and baby in Indiana has access to the best possible prenatal and postnatal care. Riley aims to provide: 1) Earlier diagnoses of fetuses with congenital anomalies, 2) More immediate diagnoses and care for moms carrying high risk pregnancies, and 3) Improved infant survival rates. The Zionsville Kiwanis club and Zionsville residents can raise awareness about Indiana's mortality rate and current efforts to improve it and educate your community about the "ABCs of Safe Sleep" to prevent sleep-related infant deaths.
Zionsville High School Key ClubIt is well known that Zionsville's schools excel in academics, music, athletics and performing arts, but local students also impact our community, state and world through service leadership. In recent years, the Zionsville High School Key Club has collected hundreds of socks and other supplies for Wheeler Mission, sponsored community blood drives, after-school baby-sitting, face-painting at the Zionsville Fire Department's pancake breakfast, Christmas gift packages for needy families and more.

Deviate Brewing - Craft Beer@DeviateBrewing Deviate from the norm is the guiding mantra that we apply to our brewery design, approach and how we create our recipes. Often craft beer is held and judged by standard guidelines, where every aspect is defined and often confined by long standing definitions. And although we can respect the talent to brew a well-made beer done to style, we believe that craft beer should be fun and push the envelope of what is traditional. Working from the fundamental foundation of a high-quality base beer, one free from defects and off flavors, we like to have fun and deviate to stretch and excite your palate. Deviate will name and label one of its craft beers after the two winner of the Zionsville Kiwanis Coolest Dog and Cat Contest.
