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. Granny’s House is one of the small non-profits here in Columbia that is making a big impact in the lives of children. Granny’s House is a safe, nurturing place where public housing kids can come each day after school (from 3-6 pm) to see values, manners and God’s love in action. We provide loving arms, a safe place to play or do homework and an atmosphere of hope and calm in an all-too-often chaotic world. This is why we think your day will be well spent serving here.

What can I expect?

ForColumbia volunteers will be working outside on a few projects, including:

  • spreading gravel in the driveway;
  • spreading mulch and planting flowers in the front of the property;
  • other projects as identified.
  • Don't forget to wear your T-shirt!
    Don’t forget to wear your T-shirt!

What should I bring?

  • If sunny, we encourage you to consider bringing sunscreen and/or a hat in case you are assigned to the outdoor work.
  • We encourage all volunteers to wear close-toed shoes.
  • Be sure to wear your #ForColumbia2019 T-shirt!

Can I serve here with my children?
