For the second summer, US Together has partnered with the Mid-Ohio Foodbank and other service agencies (Community Refugee & Immigration Services, Jewish Family Services, Ethiopian Tewahedo Social Services, Franklin County Jobs and Family Services) to set up a Fresh Produce Market for low-income families in Central Ohio. The CYP Club is organizing a group volunteer project to help!

What to expect: The entire operation is volunteer run—we will help with setting up the operations (putting out tables and tents; unloading, packaging, and displaying food shipments), distributing food to families, and tearing down/cleaning up the operations. The event is outdoors and will take place rain or shine!

Additional (optional) ask: If you can donate plastic grocery bags (Kroger, Giant Eagle, etc.) and/or other reusable bags, that would be great! The produce market is in need of bags for the customers.

After volunteering, if the group is willing, we can go to brunch at a local restaurant on Morse Road.

What to wear: Please dress for the weather and wear closed-toed shoes.

Who to look for: This volunteer activity will be led by CYP Club Cares board members Julia Jackels and Naren Baskara Rao. Should you have any questions, please email Julia at juliamjackels@gmail.com.

Where to park: Volunteers can park in the parking lot behind the church.

About the Cause: Us Together was founded in 2003 by Nadia Kasvin and Tatyana Mindlina, who are both former refugees themselves. They officially began resettling refugees in 2005, and expanded to create two more satellite offices in Cleveland and Toledo. The organization offers comprehensive integration services. The organization focuses on assisting clients in four areas of integration: social, economic, civic, and linguistic. The organization aims to equip our clients with the skills necessary to navigate U.S. systems that were previously unfamiliar to them. These include the job market, the public health system, social services, education systems, and many others that are key to maintaining day to day life in the U.S.
