The Columbus Social Media Cafe and your local bloggers invite you to join us for the first ever Flash Mob Food (non)Drive for the Mid-Ohio Food Bank on Monday July 28th. Bring non-perishable food items to donate and have fun doing it.
Here’s how it works:
Everyone participating will board the COTA route #3 either at Broad and High departing at 5:57p (same side of the street as the State House) or along it’s route to Lane Avenue.
When we arrive at Lane Avenue, we’ll box up our donations and enjoy the company of others at Caribou Coffee, Graeters Ice Cream as well as the other merchants at The Shops on Lane Avenue.
The goal is multifaceted. We’ll lend a hand to our local food bank because there is a great local need. We’ll demonstrate the power of our local social media. We’ll demonstrate how easy it is to use public transportation to access good shopping. We’ll demonstrate how public transportation benefits local business and we’ll have fun doing it.
COTA route 3 departs (Northwest Boulevard) on-time from Broad and High at 5:57p and arrives at Lane Avenue at 6:22. Join us anywhere along the route, which you can find at this link. Bus fare is $1.50 each way and exact change is required. If you’re commuting by bus to work that day purchase, a day pass (from the driver) for $3.50 and you can use it for the entire day.
