Be a Buddy with ECRN+ Parent’s Night Out (3/17/18)

March 17 @ 4:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Columbus Gives Back is excited to partner with the YMCA’s Early Childhood Resource Newtork+ (ECRN+) to support children with special needs and their families. One such way you can be a part of this partnership is by volunteering as a ‘buddy’ for the ECRN+ monthly Parents’ Night Out at the Grove City YMCA. We need people who are interested in being a “buddy” to a child with special needs. During the night the kids will have the opportunity to play with others, do crafts, eat dinner, swim (if old enough) and watch a movie.

All Volunteers must submit volunteer application as soon as possible, so that background checks may be performed. The application can be sent to Samantha Stewart (Program Director) sstewart@ymcacolumbus.org and Cassie Kranz at ckranz@ymcacolumbus.org

Where:  Grove City YMCA – 3600 Discovery Dr, Grove City, OH 43123

When: Saturday, March 17th 4:00-7:30 PM

Event Leaders: Alfred@columbusgivesback.org and Diana@columbusgivesback.org

What: We will be buddying up with kids as they do crafts, play, swim, eat, and watch movies!

Additional information: All volunteers must submit an application and pass a background check before volunteering!
