As a Newsie, you have an opportunity to participate in multiple ways:

  •  We are here to help clothe needy school children in Franklin County. The clothing process consists of three parts:
    • taking applications
    • doing home visits
    • helping when the children come in for their clothing appointment
  • In December, Charity Newsies has two main fundraisers.  As a member, we need your help with the Annual Clothe-A-Child Gala and Auction and the Annual Paper Sale.
  • Every year, members gather to enjoy the Member Golf Outing and Member Clippers Night.
  • Throughout the year, our members generously donate their time to help at the different races in Columbus, such as the Capital City Half Marathon, Emerald City Race and the Columbus Marathon.
  • Our members enjoy participating in the Columbus Veterans Day Parade, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade and the Worthington Memorial Day Parade.

The process to become a Newsie involves the following:

  • Completion of an application, signed by two members as sponsors, along with $100 fee for the first year’s dues.
  • Completion of BCI and FBI background checks.
  • Personal interview with a member of the Newsies Membership Committee.
  • Acceptance by the Board of Trustees & Membership

We look forward to meeting you and having you join our
current members here at Charity Newsies.

Help us to bring smiles on the faces of children in Central Ohio.
