Advance Auto Parts® Monster Jam℠ and Columbus Charity Newsies will hold a winter accessories drive for local children on Saturday, Dec. 1 from 10 a.m. – Noon in conjunction with the Columbus Winter Farmers’ Market at Charity Newsies, located at 4300 Indianola Ave. A ticket voucher redeemable for the Monster Jam℠ show at Nationwide Arena on Friday, Jan. 4, will be given for a donation of new, children’s winter mittens, gloves, hats and scarves. A total of 300 ticket vouchers will be distributed; limit two per family.
“Charity Newsies has provided clothing for more than a ½ million central Ohio children since we began in 1907,” said Charity Newsies’ officer, Chuck Rundio IV. “With cold weather season approaching, it will be great to provide kids in need with an extra pair of gloves or hat.”
The winter accessories drive occurs one week before Charity Newsies’ annual newspaper drive when hundreds of member volunteers hit the streets of Columbus to raise money to help clothe children in central Ohio.
