ON A MISSION TO PROVIDE MEALS TO HOMELESS FAMILIES
Make a difference today and provide a meal for homeless families. In 2005, YWCA Columbus responded to a community call to take over emergency shelter and services for families without homes. Many are working poor and unable to meet high housing costs; many are women raising children alone. The 50-room center offers these families safety and support, a place where they can get three healthy meals a day, and a warm, secure place to sleep.
We rely on volunteers and donors 365 days a year to provide meals to homeless families staying at our Family Center. This saves the organization over $200,000 annually, and when there’s a crisis, this need is even more crucial.
OPTIONS TO PROVIDE A MEAL:
Provide a Meal
Provide a meal for families by physically providing the meal and/or ingredients for our kitchen staff to prepare. Send a small group to help with the preparation and boxing (optional).
Sponsor a Meal
Don't want to cook or buy the ingredients yourself? Financially sponsor a meal (or part of a meal) for our kitchen staff to prepare and serve for a donation of
$300 for breakfast or $500 for lunch/dinner
Contribute to Part of a Meal
Community Night is an evening where the community comes together to donate a full meal for families. Shop our Amazon wish list, drop off items, or make a donation.
Prepare a meal
In an effort to ensure the safety of volunteers, we are temporarily suspending all in-person volunteer opportunities until further notice. Thank you for getting involved and helping in other ways at this time!
