Why are we serving here?

One of the ways ForColumbia strives to love and serve our neighbors is by serving those non-profit organizations that are actively working every day to enrich the lives of people in Columbia.

Orr Street Studios is a non-profit that since 2006 has transformed a once abandoned area of downtown into a vibrant art scene, providing space for local artists to create artwork, as well as opportunities for Columbians to experience these artists’ creativity.

As an effort maintained primarily by volunteers with a passion for bringing beauty into all areas of life, we want to support their efforts by coming alongside them this year. This is ForColumbia’s first year at this non-profit, and we’re excited to serve here.

What can I expect?

  • other projects as identified.

What should I bring?

  • Come prepared to paint! Wear clothing you wouldn’t mind getting splattered.
  • We encourage all volunteers to wear close-toed shoes.
  • Be sure to wear your #ForColumbia T-shirt!

Can I serve here with my children?
