Columbus, Ohio: The Adopt an Area Program is part of the Keep Columbus Beautiful campaign, which seeks to partner with area businesses, schools, organizations, families, and individuals to encourage more livable neighborhoods by keeping the communities free of litter and debris.

Members of the program must agree to clean their adopted area at least twice per year over a two year period to maintain active membership.

TekCollect is proud to be a part of the Adopt an Area Program and recently hosted their first pick up of 2016 by cleaning up litter along the stretch of street on which TekCollect’s headquarters reside. Over twenty employees volunteered their time to walk the section of adopted roadway and clean up the area. The endeavor took a little less than an hour, as the number of volunteers allowed the project to be completed in an efficient manner.

TekCollect is proud to be part of the Adopt an Area program and will host another pick up effort later this year. In total, more than 8500 volunteers participate in the program, providing over 25,000 hours of time toward beautification projects around the city.

Columbus, Ohio: TekCollect partnered with Neighborhood Services, Inc. (NSI) to host a spring food drive.

TekCollect first partnered with NSI in October 2015 for a clothing drive and decided to partner with them again in 2016 to help fill the shelves of their food bank.

The food drive lasted two weeks to collect non-perishable food items for Neighborhood Services’ Choice Food Pantry, a dedicated resource for Columbus-area families. In 2015, NSI had 5,988 families visit their food pantry, and unfortunately, Executive Director of Neighborhood Services, Martin Butler, says they are already experiencing higher numbers in the first quarter of 2016 than they did in 2015.

The TekCollect team wanted to address the food pantry’s needs and collected over 200 cans and boxes of food, as well as much needed personal hygiene items, such as soap, toothpaste and toothbrushes, and deodorant. TekCollect also made a monetary donation to further assist the efforts of NSI in the community.

The food was dropped off by TekCollect staff to NSI’s food pantry. Of the effort, Butler said, “NSI is grateful and happy to collaborate with such a wonderful organization as TekCollect once again! The food contributions and money that was so generously given will help to feed the 605 family visits that NSI has had each month so far this year.”

Neighborhood Services, Inc. aims to temper the ill effects of poverty by providing food and material assistance to persons in need in the Columbus community. Last year, nearly 6,000 families visited the pantry for a seven day supply of food, more than 1,400 households were served during monthly produce markets, and there were more than 500 visits to the adult and children’s clothing room. Additionally, the organization provided more than 1,000 food boxes for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter; distributed more than 400 backpacks during back-to-school time; prepared and filed taxes for 179 individuals using free AARP tax aides; and ensured 958 children had presents under the tree during the Christmas season.
