Come help Columbus Gives Back wrap birthday gifts for 165 ASC kids with April birthdays and enjoy an ASC birthday celebration! A Soldier’s Child Foundation and Venture Express have partnered together to bring smiles and birthday boxes full of gifts to children who have lost a parent during active military service.
What: Every year on their birthday our ASC children receive a big brown box in the mail, decorated with drawings, kind words and the famous “Do not open until child’s birthday.” Inside are purple wrapped gifts with shiny silver ribbon and gold bows. All wrapping supplies are provided as well as instructions. Our team of wrappers will wrap gifts, then grab some markers and decorate the outside of the box! We ask that you bring your mad wrapping skills, your artistic flair, have fun, and be creative!
Where: Ohio Army National Guard, 200 Colemans Crossing, Marysville OH 43040
When: Saturday, March 21st from 8am – 12pm
