COLUMBUS (WCMH) — It was an assembly line of giving at St. Stephen’s Community House Sunday morning.
This week, the non-profit is hosting its 65th annual “Christmas Cares — Unions Share” food giveaway.
More than 1,000 volunteers load shopping carts with boxes of food and fresh produce. Then they deliver the donations to families driving through the parking lot.
A central Ohio motorcycle club volunteers at the event every year, making sure everyone leaves with a smile.
“The people that are coming through in their cars, they might not have that upbeat or positive attitude for the holidays,” said Columbus Ruff Ryders member “A-Game.” “So we not only want to try to give them a donation but try to lift their spirits as well.
The event lasts through Wednesday.
St. Stephen’s will accept walk-ins with proof of residency and children’s birth certificates.
