Why are we serving here?

One of the ways ForColumbia strives to love and serve our neighbors is by working in locations that benefit the entire community. This year, we are excited to serve at four Columbia Public Schools, including Hickman High School. Serving at our public schools is one way we can say “thank you” to the teachers and staff who are actively working in the lives of our children every day. This is why we think your day will be well spent serving Hickman High School.

What can I expect?

A large group of ForColumbia volunteers will be working both indoors and outside at Hickman High School on a variety of projects, including:

  • painting areas of the athletics department;
  • building shelves/organizing storage areas;
  • cleaning/painting handrails inside the building;
  • weeding/mulching trees and flower beds all around the property;
  • painting outside handrails, bike racks and trash cans;
  • picking up trash and other debris all around the property, and other clean-up as identified.
