Details:

Goodwill Columbus is one of the largest charities in Central Ohio tackling workforce development, particularly for people with disabilities. Join Besa and Goodwill Columbus to support The Young Adult Services program and the Sage Seniors program. Each provides unique and varied opportunities for individuals with developmental disabilities to become involved in the community. Through this rewarding program, participants gain self-respect, self-worth and the feeling that they are part of something meaningful. 

 

As a volunteer, your team will partner with Goodwill Columbus participants in a Project Runway-style competition, the more creative and inventive the better! In the past, outfits have been designed from newspaper, donated clothing, and much more. Your creativity and a willingness to help is all that’s needed!

 

All clothing, crafting materials, decorations, etc. will be provided, but if associates would like to contribute items such as old clothing, feather boas, or art items, feel free!

  • This project provides direct-interaction with individuals who have developmental disabilities and some may require mobility assistance (i.e. pushing a wheelchair). 
  • Please wear clothing you won't mind getting a little messy, we will be using paint and other art supplies. If you have a Giving at Express t-shirt, please wear it for photographs. 
  • Parking is available in the surface lot North of Goodwill Columbus, adjacent to West 5th Avenue. Signs notate that a permit is required, but that's not accurate for volunteers.
