Why are we serving here?

One of the ways ForColumbia strives to love and serve our neighbors is by serving those who are actively working every day in the lives of people in Columbia. We have an individual who lives in our community and has been collecting children’s clothing for some time, donating them to various foster families all over Missouri and even beyond. The effort has produced more clothing than she can even keep up with! So to serve not only this generous Columbian but also foster care organizations in our area, we are taking her excess clothing, organizing it and then giving it out to multiple locations in our city who serve foster families and children coming out of crisis situations. We believe your day will be well spent making this effort a reality.
