Site UPDATED

On Hold

Updated April 29, 2020: Though COVID-19 and our community’s stay-at-home order has slowed our efforts down, we continue to make plans to organize a neighborhood clean-up effort in this neighborhood in the northeast area of our city. ForColumbia’s core mission is to love and serve our neighbors, and a multi-year commitment to neighborhoods is one of the ways we do this. This work will begin to be scheduled once the City of Columbia, Boone County and/or the state of Missouri indicate it is safe to do so.

We are anticipating this work will begin in June 2020.


  • Serving Time: 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
    • Arrive at the Site:
      • Morning Volunteers: 9:45-10:00 a.m.
      • Afternoon Volunteers: 11:45 a.m.-Noon
  • Lunch for Volunteers: TBD
    • Time: Noon-1:00 p.m.

Why are we serving here?

ForColumbia’s mission – to bring Christians together to love and serve our neighbors – puts us in touch with those in Columbia who are more marginalized; the chronically poor, the elderly, single-parent households, those with disabilities. This year, we are serving an eastern low-income neighborhood. When we give our time for the benefit of others, we send the message that they are valuable.

What can I expect?

Details are being finalized on the work we plan to do at this site.
