Green Columbus is a volunteer-driven non-profit organization dedicated to educating and engaging the Central Ohio community on sustainability issues. The group will host a Green Drinks fundraiser from 6 to 8 p.m. on March 19, at the Cultural Arts Center in downtown Columbus.
The event will include a silent auction, and all money raised that evening will be used during their April 19 – 26 Earth Day service event week, a full seven days of volunteer opportunities in conjunction with The Columbus Foundation.
Entitled “Gratitude”, the service week activities are spread across hundreds of locations around Central Ohio, culminating in a final celebration at Columbus Commons featuring live music, food trucks, kids’ activities, sustainability-focused businesses and more.
Projects will be available for any age level or experience; these projects include planting trees, cleaning alongside riverbanks and developing gardens.
