A key part of being a member of Phi Kappa Psi is sharing The Great Joy of Serving Others. At Woodrow Wilson Leadership School, participants will have an opportunity to help communities within Indianapolis in a number of ways. While the list may grow bigger, we have the following projects confirmed:

  1. Habitat for Humanity ReStore
  2. Habitat for Humanity ReStores are nonprofit home improvement stores and donation centers that sell new and gently used furniture, appliances, home accessories, building materials and more to the public at a fraction of the retail price.

    ReStores are independently owned and operated by local Habitat for Humanity organizations. Proceeds are used to help build strength, stability, self-reliance and shelter in local communities and around the world.

  3. 24 Foundation
  4. 24 Foundation is back for a sixth year in Indiana to host 24 Indianapolis! The event headquarters will be held at Butler University and the 3-mile Loop runs through Butler Tarkington Neighborhood. The event hosts over 400 riders and 200 walkers, who will raise funds for the IU Simon Cancer Center.

  5. Gleaners Food Bank
  6. Gleaners is leading the fight against hunger in Indiana by distributing food to more than 250 partner agencies in 21 Indiana counties: food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters.

    Gleaners also provides direct services to those struggling with hunger, through programs such as BackSacks: Weekend Food for Kids, School-Based Pantry, C.A.R.E. Mobile Pantry, and Community Cupboard.

  7. Servants at Work
  8. SAWs©, is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) that builds wheelchair ramps to provide persons with disabilities and conditions of aging with the freedom to remain in their homes and reconnect with their communities. SAWs also provides meaningful experiences for volunteers that can be life changing for them as well as for the ramp recipient and their caregivers. Overcoming their activity impediments allows people to "age in place" and remain in their homes.
