In the Spirit of Columbus and #Share31, Doug Kridler and The Columbus Foundation performed random acts of kindness. We caught the bus and covered a fare, paid for some purchases at a Volunteers of America thrift store, covered lunch for a senior couple, paid at a taco truck for a cyclist, and surprised a nutritionist at the Near East Side Co-Op before getting back to work!
Post your act of kindness with #Share31 and Thirty-One Gifts will donate to Ronald McDonald House Charities on your behalf. Thank you!
The truly amazing new Driving Park branch of the Columbus Metropolitan Library is now open. The resources and space will really blow you away!
It’s the first of 10 libraries CML is building to meet the growing needs of our community. CML continues to deliver the #1 library system in America! View more photos
The Spirit of Columbus
A new cultural wall along the Long Street bridge was unveiled to a massive and excited crowd last night. The wall, designed by local artists Kojo Kamau (second from right) and Larry Winston Collins (second from left), is made up of 60 panels with more than 100 images paying homage to the neighborhood. The Long Street bridge serves as a pedestrian link between the Discovery District and the King-Lincoln area.
Thanks to the hard work of Weinland Park Civic Association’s Health and Wellness Committee, and with support from a Neighborhood Partnership Grant, Weinland Park residents are making several field trips for fresh food and to experience the rich agricultural amenities of local farms throughout 2014. Pictured here is the group that visited Circle S Farm to pick delicious strawberries. The Neighborhood Partnership Grants (NPG) program is a collaborative effort of The Columbus Foundation, United Way of Central Ohio, PNC, and Bob Evans. The program is designed to support neighborhood organizations and improvements in low- and moderate-income areas of Franklin County.
