*******NEW LOCATION for 2018: Wolfe Park***********

Thank you for your interest! Through Good Neighbors of Central Ohio and our annual picnic, we strive to accomplish the following goals: to create a positive activity for homeless families and individuals, and to educate the community and dispel myths regarding the homeless. In addition to a fun day, homeless families are provided with much needed clothing, personal care items, as well as, shoes, books, toys, blankets, and travel bags in preparation for winter.

*******NEW LOCATION for 2018: Wolfe Park***********  

Wolfe Park is located at 105 Park Drive. It is off Broad Street next to the Franklin Park Conservatory. 

Your company may provide a match or volunteer credit for your service!

Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older. Children between 12 and 17 may volunteer provided an adult will accompany them and supervise them during their volunteer shift.
