SAWs Announces the 3000th Ramp

As we ramp up our 2021 build season, SAWs is very excited to announce that on August 14th SAWs will be constructing their 3,000th ramp.  What an exciting milestone for SAWs!  (The first ramp was built in 2003.) There will be a “Blue-Ribbon” ceremony that will include an impactful client storyline, media coverage, buffet lunch, and more. 


Changing Lives One Ramp at a Time: Talica's Story

We’ve all heard the expression “your life can change in an instant.” This past Fall, SAWs received a call to build a ramp for a young teenage girl.  We were asked late in the season as the weather was beginning to turn cold and there were not many ramp-building Saturdays left; the schedule was full. It was suggested to Talica’s mother that March or April would be a better date.  Then we learned the rest of the story.


Partner Spotlight: Second Presbyterian Church

Rev. David Berry, Mission Minister at Second Presbyterian Church of Indianapolis, along with the rest of the congregation have faithfully supported the SAWs mission with volunteers, prayers, encouragement, and financial support since 2003.  Church members have served as Board Members, Area Coordinators, Project Managers, and volunteers.  


New Staff Member: Tim Thurston

In January 2021, Tim Thurston joined the SAWs family as Regional Hub Manager. He brings years of experience in operational and project management, customer stewardship, financial and marketing management. Tim will be responsible for all hub activity throughout Indiana. He is already wearing many hats and has been actively promoting SAWs’ Corporate Team Building program, finding additional referring agencies, and recruiting new service clubs (Rotary, Kiwanis, Lions) to volunteer. 


Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities

The 2021 ramp building season is just beginning and there are plenty of volunteer opportunities. Whether you are a seasoned volunteer or looking for your first experience, we have a place for you. In just under 5 hours you can be a part of changing someone's life.
