Habitat Young Professionals (HYP) is putting on Rock the Block on June 2nd! The event is a neighborhood clean-up day in which Habitat for Humanity MidOhio partners with families in the neighborhood of a future Habitat home to improve the appearance of the whole neighborhood. We’ll do landscaping, minor outdoor repairs, and general clean-up working with volunteers, neighborhood residents, and Habitat homeowners. Volunteers like you will receive free lunch on-site which provides time to socialize with other participants.
Where: Southeast Lions Park, 185 E. Barthman Ave. Columbus, OH 43207
When: Saturday, June 2nd from 10am-3pm
Event Leaders: Diana@columbusgivesback.org and Andee@columbusgivesback.org
What to Wear: Volunteers should wear comfortable clothing that they don’t mind getting dirty. Volunteers must wear sturdy hard-soled shoes (work boots preferred). Absolutely no sandals or open-toed/open-heeled shoes allowed.
What to Bring: Don’t forget to bring a water bottle!
#SocialTwist: We will celebrate meeting new people and being awesome volunteers at lunch during the event!
About Habitat: Affordable, decent housing is one of our most basic human needs, yet it is in alarmingly short supply in our very own neighborhoods and throughout the world. A decent place to call home creates stability, launching families onto a positive trajectory of generational change that includes hope, improved health, and a better quality of life. Habitat for Humanity-MidOhio has spent more than a quarter century bringing the dream of homeownership to families in need.
About #CbusGivesBack: Columbus Gives Back coordinates group volunteer events with local non-profits, organizes philanthropic happy hours to raise support and awareness for our non-profit partners, and participates in other philanthropic events while emphasizing our social twist: to have fun with volunteers new and old during and after events in the hopes of creating a culture of community engagement amongst our target audience of young professionals.
