Indians in the Community
The Indians have been part of the Spokane community for over 100 years, and throughout that time have played an active role in shaping the Inland Northwest. As an organization, the Indians take great pride in being a positive catalyst through their support of education, healthcare, and a variety of non-profit organizations in our community
The Indians involvement in education includes the Itron Champions Program, which provides 500 tickets to students at low-income schools, as well as the Banner Bank Scholarship Program which provides assistance for local high school students to further their education. In addition, the Indians mascots also make appearances at local middle and elementary schools to encourage good attendance, hard work, and perseverance in the classroom.
The Indians have also created several events that raise awareness, provide funds, and improve the quality of life for area residents. These events include the Pitch for the Cure Breast Cancer Walk, 4th of July Pennant Run, Premera Care-a-Van Hospital Visits, and the newly created Ride the Bases Motorcycle Ride. Beneficiaries of these events include the Susan G. Komen Foundation, The Rypien Foundation, The Wounded Warrior Project, Shriners Hospitals for Children, and Sacred Heart Children's Hopital.
in our community, and will continue to do so in 2014 and beyond.
