Why are we serving here?

One of the ways ForColumbia strives to love and serve our neighbors is by serving those non-profit organizations who are actively working every day in the lives of people in Columbia. This year, Columbia First Assembly of God will be hosting a project where volunteers will be putting together care packages for multiple non-profits – Cor, The Food Bank, In2Action, Primrose Hill, St. Raymond’s Society, and the Douglass High School CRIBS Program.

What can I expect?

ForColumbia volunteers will be working inside the church to organize the provided items into various “care packages” for six different organizations (outlined above). This serving opportunity is ideal for:

  • parents who want to bring their young children with them as they serve;
  • senior volunteers or others who are unable to be on their feet for three hours;
  • anyone who, for whatever reason, is not able to do “active labor.”

After putting together care packages, some volunteers will be asked to deliver these items to one of the organizations they are serving.

What should I bring?

  • Volunteers do not need to bring anything.
  • Be sure to wear your #ForColumbia2018 T-shirt!

Can I serve here with my children?

Yes, this is an ideal serving opportunity. Young children are free to play alongside their parents while they organize care packages, and older children can assist in this project.
