Why are we serving here?
One of the ways ForColumbia strives to love and serve our neighbors is by partnering with our city in ways that put us in touch with those who are more marginalized in Columbia – the chronically poor, the elderly, single-parent households, those with disabilities. This year we are once again serving significantly in housing managed by the Columbia Housing Authority, including Oak Tower, a high-rise housing option for low-income seniors.
What can I expect?
On Friday night, ForColumbia is hosting a Bingo Night for the residents. Middle- and high school students are encouraged to join in this event.
On Saturday, volunteers will be working at Oak Tower on several projects. Details are being finalized on the work we plan to do at this site.
What should I bring?
- We encourage all volunteers to wear close-toed shoes.
- Be sure to wear your #ForColumbia2020 T-shirt!
Can I serve here with my children?
Yes, we encourage families to bring children. Older kids can help serve at this location.
