Details:

YWCA Columbus stand-ups against injustices within our community and passionately protect the most vulnerable among us. They empower women, people of color, and the underprivileged by initiating systematic social change that will create a Columbus of peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. Their 50-room emergency shelter offers families a secure place to sleep while they receive the critical support they need to find permanent housing.

 

Join Besa and the YWCA Family Center to transform the Family Center, ensuring it is a welcoming environment for all people. As a volunteer, you'll assist with outdoor projects, such as mulching, weeding, window cleaning, planting, and more. All gardening supplies will be provided.

 

The YWCA will provide gloves and we'll also practice social distancing. No client interaction will take place during this volunteer event. Volunteers are required to bring their own mask, as the YWCA will not be providing any. If you have your own gloves, face mask and/or hand sanitizer please feel free to bring it/use your own. 

 

The health and safety of volunteers is a priority. If you are sick, over the age of 50, or have a chronic health condition, it is in your best interest to stay home. Click here for more information about COVID-19.
