There are many ways to get involved

We rely heavily on our dedicated volunteers and cannot succeed without them. Volunteers play a vital role at our events and behind the scenes. 

With YOUR help we can reach more schools and more students! If there is an opportunity that you would like to participate in, or would like to learn more about, contact us!

Recurring Opportunities

BUDDY BAg DeliverY

Delivery is a critical piece of getting Buddy Bags into the hands of kids who need them. Are you interested in helping for the 2017-2018 school year?

Columbus Area Schools

Needs: Volunteers to deliver Buddy Bags to Columbus area schools. We meet to load the truck at 8:30 am and return approximately 11:00 am.

Worthington Schools

Needs: This is a recurring volunteer opportunity, the first and/or third Tuesday of the month between 8:30-9:00 am.

Host a Food Drive

We go through cases and cases of the nonperishable food items that make up a Buddy Bag each month. Food drives, especially those targeted at our highest cost items (shelf stable milk, peanut butter and microwaveable meals) help us significantly offset costs.

Help feed hungry kids in our community by hosting a food drive at your work, school, community group, faith-based organization or neighborhood. You could even host a food drive at your Thanksgiving Dinner!
