Serving the East Columbus Community
The William H. Adams Youth Foundation is dedicated to a legacy of community service and leadership. The mission of the Foundation is to support programs and opportunities for the youth of East Columbus. By partnering with quality organizations that deliver a diverse mix of programs and activities, the Foundation will do its part to enrich the lives of young people and their families.
The Foundation provides support for programs offered by the William H. Adams Community Recreation Center, East Columbus Elementary School and other institutions that serve the neighborhood. Our vision is to grow to support successful programs from across the City in several key areas:
The Adams Foundation partners with Operation Homefront for the annual Back-to-School Brigade™, a national school supply collection campaign. Last year the program distributed over 25,000 backpacks filled with school supplies to military families and communities across the country. Dollar Tree is the presenting sponsor and will set out collection barrels July 5th through August 11th at over 5,000 Dollar Tree and Deals stores nationwide.
Working with youth is like throwing a stone into a pond; the ripples keep expanding far beyond our time and place, far beyond our ability to measure or even envision.
