SPREADING LOVE AND POSITIVITY IN OUR COMMUNITY (COLUMBUS, OH) THROUGH RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS, CHARITABLE GIVING AND VOLUNTEERING.
“Hunger will return, hair will grow, clothes will fade, but acts of love and encouragement create everlasting growth.”
The Make-A-Day Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization that provides outreach to Columbus’ homeless population. For more than three years, these outreach efforts have been centered around hosting block party styled, pop-up events. Each event focuses on connecting our homeless guests with our community and resources available to end homelessness. Guests are also provided with free clothing, personal care items, a complementary meal and of course our famous haircuts, shampoos, and shaves from some of the city’s best local cosmetologists.
The Make-A-Day Foundation also assists event guests with ongoing challenges, including those related to health, behavioral health, community and social services.. Make-A-Day’s homeless guests to recieve access to “on-the-spot” presumptive Medicaid health insurance coverage, as well as on-sight medical, behavioral health, dental and vision referrals. Make-A-Day also offers guests on-site access to pro-bono legal help and to begin the process for misdemeanor expungement, certain warrant removals, peer support services and other smart justice resources and programs.
Empowering the impoverished through inclusive community events, acts of kindness, advocacy and educational awareness.
We aim to rekindle that beautiful person to person connection with strangers in our community and let love spread like wildfire.
Join us with your time, your talents and your love to Make-A-Day together!
