Accessibility: This location and tasks are suitable for volunteers with alternative accessibility requirements.

When: Wednesday, June 3rd 1:00pm – 4:00pm

COVID-19 Precautions: All Columbus Gives Back volunteers are required to wear face masks and observe social distancing as appropriate to complete volunteer tasks. Any volunteers determined to neglect these precautions and put other volunteers or the people we serve at risk will be dismissed from the event. 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.

About Project OpenHand: Project OpenHand-Columbus (POHC) is dedicated to meeting the nutritional needs of men, women, and children living with HIV/AIDS in central Ohio and their families. POHC became a program of LifeCare Alliance in December 2004.

POHC offers an extensive intervention program that addresses the causes of malnutrition and hunger associated with HIV/AIDS. Medical research has shown that nutritious food is one of the most powerful weapons available for fighting AIDS.

POHC services are offered FREE of charge, though contributions are graciously accepted.

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: 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.
