COVID-19 Precautions: All Columbus Gives Back volunteers are required to wear face masks and observe social distancing as appropriate to complete volunteer tasks. Volunteers who are sick, especially with fever or the growing number of Covid-19 symptoms, should stay home. We highly recommend that our volunteers wash their hands, use hand sanitizer at the beginning and end of the event, and/or wear gloves. We will follow whatever safety policy our nonprofit partners have in addition to the safety precautions listed above. Any volunteers determined to neglect these precautions and put other volunteers or the people we serve at risk will be dismissed from the event.
About the BHLG: Belvidere is a community garden in central Hilltop operated by Homes on the Hill CDC. This is YOUR garden! Stop to water or pick what you need!
About Homes on the Hill CDC: Homes on the Hill is a not-for-profit organization that develops affordable housing in southwestern Franklin County, Ohio with an accomplished record of providing homebuying and home ownership programs. They also offer a variety of programs to help you get into – and stay in – the right home with homebuying and homeownership education programs conducted in both English and Spanish.
About Columbus Gives Back: 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.
#SocialTwist: Social Twists have been suspended until further notice, but typically we will also encourage volunteers to join us afterwards for food and drinks to better get to know the other cool folks in our group! Rather we encourage each of our volunteers to support local business during this time.
