We are an all-volunteer 501 (c) 3 chapter of Assistance League, a national philanthropic organization, one of two chapters in Ohio.  We provide programs and funding to meet the “unmet needs” of women and children in Columbus and Franklin County.

The GOAL of this Walk/Run is to raise money to provide assistance to our “HEAD and TOE” Program.  We now provide shoes and haircut vouchers to needy children in four (4) Columbus inner-city elementary schools. The NEED is great. Therefore, we must increase the number of schools served.  Our programs also include assistance to survivors of abuse and domestic violence.  We provide Assault Survivor Kits and clothing to area hospitals for use in their emergency rooms and stuffed toys to Franklin County Children’s Services.  We have expanded our hospital program to include Nationwide Children’s Hospital, where we supply clothing, hygiene kits and toys to over 1000 abused children each year.  And we coordinate a program to provide much-needed dental care for needy, uninsured Columbus school children.  All donations are 100% tax deductible.
