Painting houses since 2005 - for free
Central Ohio Work Camp provides a unique opportunity for teenagers to serve their neighbors by providing a week's worth of their time voluntarily painting the houses of people who are in need. For one week in June, nearly one hundred teenagers and adults spend their evenings in the dorms of Otterbein University, and then divide up into work crews painting six or seven houses.
Central Ohio Work Camp succeeds by cooperating with several local agencies, churches and organizations, and relies on the community support of businesses who help feed, equip and provide resources for this great community event. Sponsorships are needed for food, paint, supplies, tee shirts and other additional opportunities. Being involved with Central Ohio Work Camp is a great way for businesses to serve the greater Columbus community.
