Why are we serving here?

One of the ways ForColumbia strives to love and serve our neighbors is by serving those non-profit organizations who are actively working every day in the lives of people in Columbia. In2Action is a faith-based non-profit focused on helping men who are released from prison, stay out of prison, by providing supports and resources including safe and drug-free housing, provision of basic needs, life skills training, one-on-one and group counseling, case management, and transitional employment opportunities. This is why we believe your day will be well-spent serving at In2Action.

What can I expect?

Volunteers will be working outside at this site, clearing trees and brush around a pond on the property, and building a retaining wall near one of the homes in preparation for expanding the parking area.

What should I bring?

  • If you have a chain saw or other garden tools for clearing brush, please bring them.
  • Come prepared to work outside; if sunny, we encourage you to consider bringing sunscreen and/or a hat.
  • In addition, we strongly encourage you to wear long pants and bring a long-sleeved shirt to wear as you work in brushy areas.
  • We encourage all volunteers to wear close-toed shoes.
  • Be sure to wear your #ForColumbia2022 T-shirt!

Can I serve here with my children?

Yes, older children who can help clear brush could serve alongside their parents at this site. We do not recommend bringing small children.
