Our friends at Employment For Seniors (EFS) have an incredible opportunity to increase their fundraising efforts through the generosity of BMI Federal Credit Union. On three football Saturdays (September 1st, 8th and 22nd), Columbus Gives Back volunteers will park cars in the BMI parking lot located at 760 Kinnear Road (across from the Lennox Center). Funds received from the vehicle parking will assist EFS to meet its mission, assisting mature job seekers in their employment search.
As an extra incentive, you will receive a raffle ticket for every Saturday that you volunteer and will be eligible to win two tickets for the Ohio State vs. Minnesota (Oct. 13, 2018).
Where: BMI Federal Credit Union, 760 Kinnear Rd. Columbus, OH 43212
When: Saturday, September 22, 12pm – 3pm (OSU vs. Tulane kicks off at 3:30pm)
Event Leaders: Gina@columbusgivesback.org
Details: Safety vests will be provided. We will be parking approximately 130 cars for $20 per car. Volunteers will guide drivers to open slots in the lot. We ask volunteers to car pool if at all possible. Once the lot is filled, we will be dismissing volunteers, as we do not have to remain throughout the game.
While the BMI branch is open, there will be access for their patrons to go to the bank (until 1pm). During the whole event, we will also have to keep the ATM lane accessible for any BMI patron. There will be a few designated spaces saved for those who work in the office buildings connected to this lot; we will have the spaces marked. EFS will also provide water and snacks for volunteers. Public restrooms for the volunteers will be available in the bank until it is closed at 1pm. After that time, we will have to cross to the Lennox Center
