Welcome Indianapolis to the OneBrick Family!!!

Last weekend, six One Brick volunteers and Event Managers packed their cars and headed to Indianapolis to help One Brick launch its eighth chapter.  Yay One Brick Indy!

It was a mega-weekend of mega-volunteering:  6 events, 100 volunteers, 250+ hours of service!

Here’s what we did:

  • One Huge House Painted;
  • 12 trees planted;
  • Dozens of dogs washed and walked;
  • Dozens of sheets of drywall hung at the food coop;
  • 1300 grocery bags stuff; and
  • One keg (mostly) drunk.

If you have friends in Indianapolis, make sure you let them know the One Brick is in town!

In addition to Chicago, One Brickers from Minneapolis, San Francisco and Ann Arbor joined in on the fun to make the Indy launch the biggest yet.  Che ck out the video!
