The local video production company Bennett Innovations will donate a $25,000 custom video to Outreach
Inc., a Christian organization that ministers to homeless youth.
Bennett Innovation, which creates video for advertising and corporate communications, decided in June to celebrate its 25th anniversary by awarding a pro bono video project to charity.
President Bruce White said the firm received more than 50 applications.
Bennett staff was truly humbled to be asked to support so many great causes in central Indiana,” White said.
The selection committee chose Outreach partly because of its “potential life-changing impact to street youth in Indianapolis.”
Outreach will use the video in a community awareness campaign this fall.
“Youth homelessness is a cruel and harsh reality in our city each night,” said Kim Luppino, director of stewardship. “We want everyone to know they can help us in the journey to transform the lives of these young people, and help them become productive, and self-sufficient adults.”
Outreach began in 1996. It has a drop-in center and offices at 2822 E. New York St.
