Community Commitment

Join over 1,000 of your fellow Buckeyes in a day of service on Saturday, August 25th, 2018. Become connected to the Columbus community at Pay It Forward’s 21st Annual Community Commitment, one of the largest single-day community service events held on a college campus.

Since 1997, Buckeyes have started the new school year by coming together to serve the Columbus community. After meeting in the Ohio Union, students travel to one of many agencies across Columbus where they serve alongside one another. Past projects have included working at COSI, local food pantries, the Columbus Zoo, and at a variety of other nonprofit agencies.

We look forward to serving with you!
