The Minks Kids is a nonprofit serving the Fishers and Indianapolis, Indiana metropolitan area. Minks Kids was started with a primary focus of making a positive impact on the military veterans that are part of Indianapolis’ homeless population. The organization’s first activity was to serve meals to veterans being housed by the Hoosier Veterans Assistance Foundation in 2012. In 2013, Minks Kids filed state and federal paperwork to become a registered nonprofit. In the fall of 2014, the Minks Kids became fully registered and are actively fundraising. Future plans include opening a restaurant-style soup kitchen from which to serve meals and purchasing a food truck to deliver food to homeless.
