If you are interested in helping, please consider signing up for one of the following two events:
- Bag Drop Off (11/28/20) – Saturday, November 28 at 10:00 AM. We will meet in the Parking Lot behind the church at Scioto Ridge United Methodist Church (4343 Dublin Road, Hilliard). We are looking for volunteers to go to Hilliard neighborhoods and drop off bags with flyer attached to them. We will distribute these bags in the parking lot at the start of the event. We have already mapped out neighborhoods with about 200 houses per neighborhood. At this event, you merely go to each house and drop off a bag at the front door. Nothing else. No ringing or knocking on doors. Just act like a paperboy and drop off the bag. We’ll tell you what houses to hit via the maps. This event will take approximately 1 hour.
- Bag Pick Up (12/5/20) – Saturday, December 5 at 10:00 AM. We will meet in the Parking Lot behind the church at Scioto Ridge United Methodist Church (4343 Dublin Road, Hilliard). It will take approximately 1 and a half hours. In this event you go back to the houses where we've previously dropped off bags, and collect food. The flyers on the bags instruct people to leave donations on their driveway or front porch no later than 10 AM on 12/14. We just go and pick them up. Due to the pandemic, we do not encourage people to knock on doors if no donation is given. We will send people in groups of 4 – 5 and each group will have at least one driver with a truck or SUV following the collectors so once you collect a bag, you just drop it in the car.
Once you are done with your neighborhood, you deliver the food collected to the Hilliard Food Pantry at 4400 Cemetery Road, Hilliard, OH.
