TOPS Students Volunteer!!

Elizabeth, Carly, and Taylor volunteered on February 15th at Mid-Ohio Food Collective in Grove City. They had a blast working together, listening to music, and helping people in need. Just on Tuesday, the Mid-Ohio Food Bank in Grove City served almost 1,000 people! That’s amazing! Elizabeth, Carly, and Taylor are thankful to have been able to participate in giving back to the community.

After their hard work, they went to Panera on Lane and High to relax and spend some time socializing.


If you have yet to complete your community service hours please email and I can help you find different opportunities.
