Giving time, talent and resources does make a difference.

Doing things the Jay's Way means giving back and supporting the community that supports us. We invite you to check out the organizations we partner with on this page. Put these events on your calendar and come out and see what we're doing in person. If the spirit moves you, join us in volunteering! Or come out and show your support by giving a member of the Jay's team a high-five as you pass by! Either way, be a part!

For many years now, we have provided trucks, boxes, and labor to help make this annual event at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway a success.

Shepherd Community Center Toy Drive

Shepherd Community Center

NOV & DEC

Located on the northeast side of Indianapolis, the Shepherd Community Center works with neighborhood youth and their families to break the cycle of poverty and cultivate strong families and vibrant neighborhoods. They host a toy drive every year to create a Christmas Store where parents who might not otherwise be able to make Christmas happen can choose toys and gifts for their kids. We think this is awesome and we are happy to help by providing boxes and helping to pick up and drop off the donated items.
