Friday, November 26, 4-6pm, Community Grounds: Coffee and Meeting House, 1134 Parsons Ave.

Free Resource Friday is a donation-based initiative to provide free resources like food, clothes, and hygiene items to folks living in predominantly Black, low-income neighborhoods. Volunteers distribute items, share information, and provide support for local communities in need.

All are welcome, but QTPOC people take priority within the space.

Masks are required to enter the space. Come out from 4pm to 6pm on November 26 for free resources such as food, clothing, and hygiene products.

If you’d like to support Free Resource Fridays by donating materials, or if you’d like to get involved by offering a skill-share mini-workshop or educational class, contact us! We are always looking to foster and strengthen our partnerships in the Central Ohio community. We are also accepting donations at the event, particularly warm washed winter clothing as the weather is getting colder.

Please also consider supporting Community Grounds by purchasing items in the cafe or donating to their business.
