Get Involved!

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.

👉 This week, the Boys and Girls Club at Reeb Avenue Center is hosting the Kind Heart. Keep an eye on social media for a chance to stop by and add your note!

👉 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.
