Santa Boots is an annual drive that Carm Smith of CornerSmiths began a few years ago with some local business in our city. Boots are displayed at checkout counters to collect coins and small donations to benefit the Adopt-A-Family program. All funds are used for this year's purchases of Adopt-A-Family items.
Thank you to the following participating businesses: Sticks & Stones, Orchids and Ivy, Molly's Snazzy Stitches, Leander Boutique, Fantasy Cupcake, CornerSmiths, The Garden Herb Shop, Harvest Moon, Shades, Impact Nutrition, The Woods at Sunoco, Wigwam, Shaw & Son Family Jewelers, Rex's Barber Shop, Nom Nom Nom, and Barrel & Boar.
There are three ways to help: 1) Adopt a child 2) Organize a "drive" to collect needed items; wrapping paper, toys, games, books, gift cards, or coats, and 3) donate money to be used to support this program.

Trick or Treat for Food has been going strong under the leadership and heart of Josh Gilger, a graduate of CWHS. As a youth, Josh was inspired to give back to this community after helping out with Scouting for Food. Consequently, for the past ten years, Josh has faithfully served the Canal Winchester community with his own drive that we have all come to know and look forward to each year.
Initially, the drive included his neighborhood of Slate Ridge Estates, but as the years progressed, it extended to more rural areas such as Deer Run, Fairfield Farms, Heather Lakes, and College View Acres. Josh is humbled by the domino effect that his initial project has culminated into, and he is so very appreciative to his mom and all of the people who stepped up to make Trick or Treat for Food all that it is today.
Now that Josh is in college and pursuing a medical degree after graduation, it is time to pass the baton on. The Canal Winchester Lions Club is taking the reins, and so the mission marches on! Please see the list below for all of the people in Canal Winchester and the Greater Columbus communities that Josh wanted to personally thank for their faithfulness over the years.

Gabriella, Alexandrea, and Samuel Howard are siblings with a mission! Over four years ago (2017), these siblings came up with an idea that was simple but impactful, "Why not take something that many people already do (purchase pumpkins) and turn it into a fundraiser for a good cause?" The program makes it super easy to get beautiful, clean pumpkins delivered to your door from Saum Family Farms just in time for the fall season. Proceeds from the service are then donated to our Food Pantry.
"Pumpkins Helping People" has grown each year since it began, initially raising $669, but over the course of the last four years, it has raised over $8,000 in all.
