NCW’s Food for Thought
Homeless in Indy
In 2020, 1,588 individuals were considered homeless.
1,402 were sheltered, leaving 186 out on the streets.
These numbers have only increased since the Covid-19 pandemic.
This past March, NCW decided to team up with Wheeler Mission and Moontime Brewing CO. to provide meals for the loc al homeless population. Wheeler is a non-denominational, Christian, social services organization. They provide critically needed goods and services to the homeless, poor, and needy of central Indiana without regard to race, color, sexual orientation, creed, national origin, or religion.
NCW x Wheeler Mission
For 125 years, Wheeler Mission has been a pillar in the Indianapolis community, providing help and food to those in need. Wheeler’s values of volunteerism, philanthropy, and partnerships align with the core values of NCW.
The first set of meals NCW sponsored went to the Men’s shelter in
downtown Indianapolis, providing 175 meals. In the same week we also got to deliver 160 meals to the Women & Children’s Shelter in the city!
All the meals were made by MoonTown Brewing Co. and were hand delivered by our very own, Madi Gall, Jordan Burger, and Kevin Casey.
Being able to give back and assist our community is something we t ake a lot of pride in. Indianapolis is our core community and we care deeply for the people that exist within it. As we continue to grow at NCW, we look forward to contributing to our newer local communities in Salt Lake City, Denver, Charlotte & Louisville.
