What Organizations are Saying about the Columbus Volunteer Challenge

We had Volunteers from Momentive Specialty Chemicals Inc. come and organize two storage areas for us. We are so very grateful for the cleaning and the organization of the storage areas . They also built shelving units and threw away a lot of trash. This was just an amazing transformation. Needless to say, we are very excited about this partnership and the work the volunteers did to create a functional work station. Thank you again United Way and the Columbus Volunteer Challenge ROCKS!!!”

It certainly does “take a village” to run non-profit health and human services agencies in our community, caring for our most vulnerable citizens. And, the greatest measure of our success includes the passion and engagement of the volunteers who support the work we do with their treasures, talents and time. Thank You…..Thank you…to all the volunteers who visited with us and experienced “up close and personal” the work we do to empower individuals with disabilities and other barriers in our community.
