Columbus Coalition for the Homeless Mother’s Day Brunch Prep – 5/11/19

May 11 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

The Columbus Coalition for the Homeless will be co-hosting as beneficiaries of the 2019 Marsha Donner Mother’s Day Brunch at L A Catering, for which all homeless and recently homeless mothers and their families are invited to be treated with an elegant meal served to them. There will be many extra special services, including flowers, gift and favor bags, keepsake photos, children’s books, and more.

What We’ll Be Doing: Our primary task will be assembling flower arrangements. In addition, we may need people to: help move supplies into the building (heavy lifting, only if you’re able); arrange children’s book display; set up kid’s activities; assemble gift bags; and any other task that may need to be done in preparation for Sunday. Be ready to do anything anything and everything!

What to Bring: Volunteers are encouraged to bring loose flowers and flower arrangements that can be taken apart and made into smaller arrangements. Fresh cut from your garden are okay too! If you have any pruning shears or scissors to cut flowers, that would be great, too!

Where: LA Catering – 670 Harmon Ave., Columbus, OH 43223. Parking is directly adjacent to the building and free.

When: Saturday, May 11th, 9am-12:30pm

Event Leaders: Richard@columbusgivesback.org

What to Wear: We will only be doing set up this day, and just ask that you wear clothes that allow you to work!

About the Columbus Coalition for the Homeless: The mission of the coalition is to empower homeless persons to achieve greater self-sufficiency, to advocate on behalf of homeless persons and organizations that serve them; and to work together to educate the central Ohio community about the devastating effects of homelessness upon individuals and families.

We are also in need of additional monetary donations. If you are able, we would greatly appreciate a donation on our GoFundMe, or sharing our page on Facebook!

About Columbus Gives Back: We love Columbus, young professionals, and getting involved! Our mission is to connect young professionals across central Ohio and engage them in our communities through 35-40 social volunteer and philanthropic opportunities per month.

#SocialTwist: After the event, we encourage you to join us for food or drinks and have fun with other cool volunteers like you!

Cancellation Policy: Due to the nature of our events, please let your event leader know if you are no longer able to make it so that we can open up the spots to other volunteers. Thanks!
