In December 2019, SSIO volunteers, including SSE students, from the Sathya Sai Centre of Indianapolis organised a ‘Winter Coat Drive’, collecting 125 sets of winter coats, scarves, socks, and gloves. In November 2019, volunteers had prepared care packages containing toothbrush, toothpaste, sanitizer, wash cloth and other items. On 7th December 2019, SSIO volunteers including SSE children gathered at the Metropolitan Baptist Church and distributed the winter coats and care packages to the homeless in the neighbourhood. The SSE children distributed hand-made greeting cards and, together with their teachers, delighted the guests with Christmas carols. The guests also  enjoyed cookies, cheese sandwiches, and warm cider. The volunteers were filled with love and gratitude for the precious opportunity to serve the homeless.
