For Columbus Students

To assist in remote learning, we’ve launched Learning Extension Centers, providing a safe environment for K-12 students to have access to the internet and learning devices, as well as meals and trained tutors.

Columbus Dream Center

During this time we are committed to giving HOPE through meeting practical needs in our city. Join us in serving to-go meals, groceries and more.

HOSPICE

Now more than ever hospice patients and caregivers are in need of volunteers to provide a comforting presence and companionship. Give the valuable gift of your time by volunteering with patients who have a life-limiting illness.

LETTER WRITING TO SENIOR CITIZENS

Let’s spread a little joy and hope to the senior citizens in our community. We want to help alleviate any feelings of isolation and replace with feelings of hope and encouragement.

LETTER WRITING TO CORRECTIONAL FACILITIES RESIDENTS

Let’s spread a little joy and hope to the people who are a part of our church behind bars. We want to help alleviate any feelings of isolation and replace with feelings of hope and encouragement.

MID-OHIO FOOD BANK

As a long-standing partner of Rock City Church, we are excited to continue partnering with them to reduce food insecurity across our city

In light of COVID-19, the Mid-Ohio Food Bank has seen their workload and the needs of our city double as industries shut down and people across many professions are unable to work.

There is currently a huge need for volunteers in their warehouse and pantry. The Mid-Ohio Food Bank has updated their model to keep volunteers and the people they serve safe.

MEALS ON WHEELS

Let’s help keep the most at risk populations at home by assisting with Meals on Wheels! More than ever they are in need of volunteers to help with food delivery.

Due to the increased needs during COVID-19, Meals-on-Wheels is hosting a 20 minute driver orientation every day (Monday- Sunday) at 11am. After the orientation, the volunteer will be given a route to deliver the meals to the directed homes.

Location: 670 Harmon Ave., Columbus, OH 43223
