We welcome your help with food donations and service on site at First English.
HELP YOUR NEIGHBOR
Help Your Neighbor was created to come to the aid of Columbus residents who have recently been hospitalized at the Inpatient Rehabilitation Center at Mount Carmel West. These individuals receive 3 hours per day of physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy in order accomplish activities of daily living that we all take for granted: walking, eating, bathing, dressing and talking. Many of these patients have debilitating functional deficits as a result of a stroke, brain or spinal cord injury, amputation, or fracture. When it is time for discharge from the hospital, many of these patients do not have adequate housing, food, clothing, or money to pay for utilities.
Help Your Neighbor gives temporary assistance to those patients in need by providing items such as rent money, air conditioning, food, clothing, or even a wheelchair or ramp.
OHIO BENEFIT BANK
The Ohio Benefit Bank is a program sponsored by the Ohio Association of Foodbanks, Ohio’s largest charitable response to hunger. The Ohio Benefit Bank (OBB) offers a free, efficient, cost-effective way to provide meaningful help to Ohio families in need of assistance. Using an Internet-based service, OBB staff and volunteers assist low and moderate-income Ohioans to apply for food assistance, Medicaid, utility assistance, federal tax credits, student financial aid, work support and other federal and state programs. The Ohio Benefit Bank has assisted over 245,000 Ohioans to access life-changing programs and resources. There are approximately 1,100 community OBB locations staffed by 3800 volunteers.
Prince of Peace serves as one of the community OBB locations. We have two members who are trained volunteers. They schedule appointments with clients who have called the church office and then meet with these clients in our conference room. Anyone interested in volunteer opportunities may call OBB at 1-800-648-1176 to get started. Training programs are offered on-line.
