People are looking for ways to celebrate the good. Let’s show the world just how much of it is in our community.
This week’s theme is Advance. Let’s celebrate the ways that kindness moves us forward.
Advance: February 27– March 3
👉 Support the CKM Advance Week Drive with Student Success Stores!
The Need: 7,700 immigrant and refugee students attend Columbus City Schools and 89% of students live in households below the poverty level. By providing students with the basic essentials, you’ll help each child start the school day healthy, confident and ready to learn.
Note: Please designate your Amazon order to ship directly to Besa. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions!
👉 Advance with our Kindness Town Hall on Thursday, March 2, 6:30–7:30pm. The discussion will include the CKM kindness team! It’s an opportunity for you and your family to learn how to get more involved in the community, post-kindness month.
251 E. Weber Rd., Columbus, OH 43202
Thursday, March 2, 6:30–7:30pm
👉 Advance with love by seeing the premiere of Kings, Queens, & In-Betweens at Gateway Film Center. Friday’s screening includes a Q&A with the director and cast. Tickets are here.
👉 Stay tuned to Instagram— we have a wrap-up surprise on Friday!
