    Faith Mission needs some extra help if anyone is able:
    via United Way of Central Ohio
    “Faith Mission needs your help! Due to changes beyond their control, Faith Mission is understaffed and in need of volunteers. They are asking anyone who is able and willing to go the extra mile to help supplement meals through the rest of the month by taking up some of the empty volunteer meal slots. For more info, please contact Sarah at sdouglas@lssco.org or 614-224-6617, ext. 2171.”
