Columbia City Serve 2017

Columbia City Serve 2017 will unite organizations and volunteers of all ages and backgrounds in a collaborative effort that builds upon our rich tradition of community service and leadership. In order to directly affect those in need of help, City Serve will focus primarily on five core areas: Health, Hunger, Home Improvement, Beautification and Education. City Serve will be held throughout the entire month of October to better benefit those in need and to give prospective volunteers additional time to get involved.
