Hey volunteers,

I hope you are doing well! CGB has been very busy so far this year, and we are continuing to make an impact every day through the amazing volunteer hours your are putting in.  How many hours, you ask? So far, our phenomenal group of volunteers has put in 270 hours of service this year, and we are just getting started!

Upcoming Events
We have 33 events on the calendar for May, so we hope you are able to find an event that works with your schedule or your interests.  We have some of our regularly scheduled events such as Game Night at the YMCA and Blankets & Brews, but we also have some really cool new or returning events that are coming up! One that I am excited to attend is Election Night at the Franklin County Board of Elections.  We get to be a big part of making democracy happen, and it was such a cool/unique experience the last time I attended — and the Franklin County Board of Elections donates $$ to CGB for every volunteer we provide! We will also be serving a Mother’s Day Brunch for homeless mother’s through the Homeless Families Foundation and helping out at the JDRF Promise Ball.

CGB News
This might be one of my most exciting updates: Columbus Gives Back has it’s own beer! Make sure to check out the maibock style beer “Columbus Gives Bock” at Endeavor Brewing Co. every Wednesday in the month of May! Also, $1 from every beer sold on Wednesdays will go to support CGB…how cool is that?

Thank you!
Columbus Gives Back simply would not exist if it wasn’t for our volunteers.  We count on you to keep making a difference, and that is exactly what you keep doing every volunteer event you attend!  So THANK YOU for your time, energy, and commitment.

May is going to be awesome. I can’t wait to give back with you!
