The McKendree Colony currently is working on a vast number of community service projects. Along with the National philanthropy being habitat for humanity, the colony takes on local service events themselves. As service being one of the colony's five principles, they recently just helped with McKendree hosting FIRST, the robotics championship in the St. Louis area. In the late spring they attend the Tasteful Affair in St.Louis and help with Food Outreach. Currently, they are working on the Bunny Hop for Can Goods with the Lyn Huxford Center for Community Service.
