This holiday season, we wanted to give back to our Columbus Community. We assembled over 500 bags filled with winter essentials for the homeless and distributed them to various homeless shelters around Columbus. We all had a blast giving back to our community and spreading Holiday cheer to those who need it!
We worked with the Star House whose mission “to do whatever it takes to lift youth out of homelessness and into a community of hope”. “Star House operates Central Ohio’s only drop-in center for youth, ages 14-24, who are experiencing homelessness. At our 24/7/365 drop-in center, youth are provided access to food, clothing, hygiene items, laundry facilities, showers and a safe place to be. Beyond basic needs, our clinical team provides therapy and case management, and partner agencies provide on-site and community-based access to stabilizing resources, such as housing, transportation, health care, employment, education, addiction services, legal aid, government benefits, ID cards and more.”
In addition to goodie bags we donated various toys to families on Wisconsin Street in Columbus, Ohio. These families were so happy that they could give their children a wonderful Christmas!
