Volunteer with Directions for Youth & Families – 5/1/19

May 1 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Columbus Gives Back is looking for cool people like you to volunteer with us and Directions for Youth & Families (DFYF) to help with preparations for their 30th annual State of the Child Luncheon! This is their signature event where we come together as a community to recognize “the state of the child” in central Ohio. The luncheon is one-of-a-kind unique because of the music and dance performances enthusiastically presented by youth in the DFYF after-school programs. In addition, some of their treatment clients and families share their stories about the impact of DFYF services.

What: As is their legacy, DFYF will be gifting guests of the luncheon with a glazed ornament and will have some special items for sale just in time for Mother’s Day.  Volunteer projects include: glazing ornaments / low skill painting, tagging ornaments with information, and planting succulents.

When: Wednesday, May 1st from 5:30pm – 7:30pm

Volunteers needed: 8

Event Leaders: diana@columbusgivesback.org

Where: Ohio Avenue Youth Center, 657 S. Ohio Avenue, Columbus, OH 43205
