INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A local not-for-profit organization received some free help Saturday morning from college students.

Michigan State’s Media Sandbox Street Team stopped in Indianapolis Saturday to help the Center of Wellness for Urban Women.

The group is helping the center with website redesign, updating their logo and developing collateral materials such as a brochure and business cards.

The students plan to stop in four cities to help non-profits while they are on their way to Austin, Tex. There, they will attend the South by Southwest Interactive Festival.

“A lot of the non-profits we’ve reached out to really need help with creative services. They don’t really have those resources. So, with things like website design, where a lot of people look at websites now, it’s really helpful for them,” MSU student Andrea Raby told 24-Hour News 8.

Michigan State University is helping the students with fuel cost and the cost of a rental van to travel to Texas. Other donations came from alumni, family and friends. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
