Volunteers link for their love of service
COLUMBIA – Local residents who share a passion for service celebrated their community efforts Friday.
The Crossing Church and Love INC of Columbia hosted Linking for Love. Program Director Jane Williams said there's a lot to cheer for.
"It's an opportunity to celebrate the collaborations and all the great work that’s being done in Columbia to help people in the name of Christ," she said.
Williams said one of those collaborations is Bike to the Future, which donates bikes to people in need who don't have cars. Lead volunteer Dan Steska said it's just one more effort to help the community.
"We thought we could start a bike program, maybe that would be of help," Steska said. "So, I talked to Love INC and they were very excited."
Steska said the volunteers reached their goal.
"Tonight we’re celebrating the 100th bike to be donated to someone in need," he said. "It’s really fulfilling."
