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. One of the organizations in our city with the greatest reach is The Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri. This organization hosts an annual event called Float Your Boat as its premiere fundraiser to help provide food to those in need. Volunteers help make this annual fundraiser a success, and this year, ForColumbia is providing those volunteers! It will be a fun and rewarding day spent serving at Float Your Boat.

What can I expect?

  • Some volunteers will be carrying boats in and out of the water.
