The Charles School (TCS) at Ohio Dominican University is a five-year Early College High School program offering students a high school diploma and up to 62 hours of college credit tuition-free. TCS provides a diverse population of students, some who may have faced obstacles in the past or might not have considered higher education, with a safe, innovative learning environment that cultivates a growth mindset and supports social and emotional learning while bridging the transition to post-secondary aspirations.


Join Besa and the Charles School to provide nutritious food to families in needDue to the pandemic, far more families are facing empty plates this holiday season. Together, we can help put dinner on the table for many families this Thanksgiving. As a volunteer, you'll help unload produce supplied by the Mid-Ohio Foodbank, organize and sort food, and pack food boxes.


Volunteers are required to bring their own face masks and must be worn at all times. Social distancing will be observed. No client interaction will take place during this volunteer event.
