Fall Is The Time To Give At Work

As the air turns cool and crisp and nature punches up the color display, Community Shares shifts into overdrive as fall workplace giving campaign launch. Staff will be reaching out to thousands of employees at various workplaces around Columbus and Central Ohio to share how donations are creating a more just, caring and healthy community for all. Speaking engagements and charity information fairs give us the opportunity to share how small gifts of $1, $2, $5 or $10 can add up to more than a half million dollars used by 65 member charities to beneift more than 2 million people in the community.

The seaons starts with the State of Ohio Combined Charitable Campaign kicking off on Wednesday, September 2nd. The kickoff event at Rhodes Tower brings State employees together to learn how to give back to the community and a chance to meet nonprofits working to benefit the community. This year's campaign features honorary chair Nick Foligno, Captain of the Columbus Blue Jackets. Be sure to visit charity information fairs happening at State of Ohio offices and departments throughout the season to meet our member charities.
