Join PUP as we celebrate 5 years of accomplishments and announce plans for the next 5 years. Individuals and companies are encouraged to support the organization through product sales and PUPstop sponsorships.
PUP is primarily supported through product sales. We work with local designers to repurpose this resource as locally made products including our wallets and handbags. The money raised from the sale of these goods go toward community projects, including the PUPstop program. The effort, the salvage of old Bush Stadium seats, is in partnership with IndyGo. Some of these seats are being refurbished and installed at bus stops throughout Indianapolis.
Those familiar with the PUP product line can expect new items this season including The Clerk, a new ladies handbag that can be carried 6 different ways (Retail $95), and The Commissioner weekender bag (Retail $165).
We will be celebrating alongside the Do317 Lounge next door. Expect:
- MOKB Sun King Concert Series Free First Friday Show begins at 8 pm w/ Ezra Furman, Shannon LaBrie and Daniel Romano
- Movember Launch
- Sun King's Movember Beer Tapping
- Live shaves by Chad's Barber Shop and barber chairs on-site
We partnered with IndyGo, Ecolaborative, and Indianapolis Fabrications to develop the Bush Stadium Seat Salvage project.
Our goal is to install the seats throughout the city, at bus stops and public spaces.
Last week, the PUP and IndyGo collaboration to salvage historic Bush Stadium seating and repurpose as benches at bus stops, known as the PUPstop program, won an Indiana Innovation Award. The awards program is the centerpiece of the Day of Innovation hosted by Centric Indy, a local coalition with a mission to elevate Indianapolis as a globally recognized center for innovation.
“The collaboration with PUP on the stadium seating project is a model for innovation in the public sector,” said Samantha Cross, IndyGo vice president of business development. “We hope it inspires others to take a fresh look at public spaces, infrastructure and collaboration.”
In order to make even more of an impact on transit stops in Indianapolis, IndyGo and PUP have created the program with a cost-sharing component whereby local businesses, community groups and even individuals can sponsor PUPstops. Thanks to cost sharing, within the next few months IndyGo will have placed nearly 20 PUPstops around the city.
The IndyGo staff will determine site eligibility for upgrade to a PUPstop and will work with program participants to negotiate a donation to cover an appropriate share of site costs. Donations to endow PUPstops will range from $850 to $1700. To request a PUPstop or to learn more about the program, visit www.IndyGo.net/PUPstops.
