The Columbus Volunteer Challenge is an annual city-wide volunteer event hosted by United Way of Central Ohio, HandsOn Central Ohio, and the City of Columbus. Each September we challenge community volunteers, corporations, non-profits, schools, universities, faith organizations and other community groups to come together in service to help build a community that is more inspired, proud, and engaged. The Columbus Volunteer Challenge started in 2012 as a celebration of our city's 200th birthday and has become the lasting legacy of the bicentennial.
