Let's Keep Summer Fun for Central Ohio Kids

Support the United For Kids Summer Drive

Imagine a summer without the local pool, library, summer sports, day camps and more. With programs closed or limited to smaller groups due to COVID-19, thousands of kids in our community will be missing these and many other fun summertime activities. In response, we’ve launched United for Kids, a summer drive to help kids in our community stay active, learning and happy.

You Can Help!

Throughout June, we are collecting items and assembling kits with indoor and outdoor toys, games, art supplies, books and sporting equipment. These kits will go to local nonprofits serving children in need in our community. Our goal is to get kits into the hands of 3,000 kids by early July!

To ensure the safety of donors, volunteers and kids, the United for Kids drive will collect items digitally and offer virtual and in-person volunteer options.

Donate to the United for Kids summer drive. A $30 donation purchases two kits.
