Beyond CGB: SON Ministries

Hi Volunteers!

Are you looking for other volunteering opportunities or different ways to keep giving back beyond what CGB has to offer? SON Ministries is an organization dedicated to working “to lift children and families out of suburban poverty by mobilizing the community to serve our neighbors”.

Description:
Serving Our Neighbors Ministries is a faith based not for profit which partners with children and families facing the unique challenges of suburban poverty in Hilliard (OH) and beyond. We mobilize life-improving resources and connect families to these resources (some of which we facilitate) and to a network of organizations and people who together strive to help strengthen families & our community. We offer a respect-filled HAND UP to those in need and mobilize the community to Serve Our Neighbor!

SON Ministries partners with low-income families in the Hilliard area and runs several programs including:

  • Freen Summer Lunch Camp
  • 3- Generation Family ESL
  • Excelerate – Children’s Entrepreneurial Restaurants
  • Connecting to Resources
  • Hilliard Helps
  • Job Jump-START
  • The Good Tidings Christmas and Coat Store
  • Free Legal Clinic
  • Learning Enrichment Centers (LECs)

On their volunteer tab, SON has many virtual and in-person opportunities for you to explore! Do you enjoy working with kids? Then look at their Online Homework Help Volunteer opportunity, or volunteer in-person at the Learning Extension Center! Looking for a fun activity to do with a group of your friends or coworkers? Get together to donate Activity Bags for children attending the Learning Enrichment Centers or collect children’s books for donation.

If any of this sounds like something you would like to get involved in check out their website, find them on Facebook, or follow SON Ministries on Instagram @sonministries.

Take the CGB spirt above and beyond!
