Push America, Pi Kappa Phi’s national organization dedicated to removing barriers set by society that prevent people with disabilities from fully integrating into society, will be having a special night Tuesday at Zaxby’s to raise funds to help make the world a more accessible place for individuals with disabilities.

The organization hopes that the funds earned during this event will help them with their goals over the coming year. The organization also hopes that this event could help raise awareness for future events Push America plans to organize over the coming months.

Push America, which was founded in 1977, states that its mission is “building leaders of tomorrow by serving people with disabilities today.” To date, the organization has done outstanding work for Americans across the country with disabilities raising over $15 million and volunteering over 600,000 hours of community service to help Americans with disabilities.
