INDIANAPOLIS -- More books will be put in the hands of homeless children in Indianapolis thanks to your donations. 

Sun King Brewery Hosted RTV6 General Manager Larry Blackerby Monday evening as he presented School on Wheels with a $25,000 check. 

RTV6 and the Scripps Howard Foundation matched the $25,000 raised by private donors in the month of February.
