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.

About Little Bottoms Free Store: Our vision is to partner with CelebrateOne, the numerous Franklinton organizations who support the area, and neighborhood residents to create a healthy, supportive, and safe community for families in Franklinton and the westside of Columbus.

This is a ministry of Central City Church, a United Methodist Church, done in partnership with West Park UMC, Bottoms Up Coffee, CelebrateOne and other neighborhood partners.

About the Franklinton Urban Empowerment Lab: Franklinton Development Association (operating as FUEL Franklinton) has a 26-year history in the Columbus neighborhood of Franklinton. The organization started as a board-led non-profit aimed to create affordable homeownership opportunities. FUEL’s mission has broadened over the years to address the affordability for Franklinton’s renters, who occupy nearly 70% of the homes in the neighborhood, and will face displacement brought on by the changing characteristics of the community. The first strategy is development of affordable housing for low-to-moderate income individuals and families in Franklinton. The second strategy is to create programming that empowers current residents. The third strategy is to connect residents with available resources in the community through Franklinton.org.

About Celebrate One: In June 2014, the Greater Columbus Infant Mortality Task Force ended its 6-month process with the release of its final report to the residents of Franklin County. In it were eight recommendations to reduce the community’s alarming infant mortality rate by 40 percent and cut the racial health disparity gap in half by 2020.

CelebrateOne was created in November 2014 to carry out the Task Force’s recommendations and ensure Franklin County meets its ambitious goal.

After the Event: Please join us for some food and drinks after the event at a nearby restaurant for our #socialtwist

Cancellation Policy: Due to the nature of our events, an accurate headcount is important.  Please contact one of the event coordinators if you have RSVP’ed but are unable to attend this event.
