Upcoming Events

Columbus Arts Festival

For the past few years, we have participated in the Columbus Arts Festival, staffing a beverage booth selling water and soda. In return for our service, the festival donates a part of their proceeds to Heart to Heart. We also collect tips at the booth which are ours to keep! Altogether, we earn between $1,000 and $1,500 per year.

This year, we will again be selling water and soda at the Columbus Arts Festival, June 10-12. Yohan will be setting up the booth Friday, Kate will be working all day Saturday, and Amy will close up shop on Friday! We’ll need cashiers, stockers, and leads/talkers. Cashiers must be comfortable with cash handling and technology (iPads and Square). Stocking involves heavy lifting. Volunteers with work with Heart to Heart staff, hand out items, and talk to customers about the pantry. All should be prepared for hot weather.

Please sign up to join us!
