The Central Ohio tech community’s push to join hands and aid those in need just wrapped its first year and is still snowballing.

The effort was the brainchild of Jordan Davis of Smart Columbus and others musing on how to harness the power of the tech community to help Columbus make it through the pandemic. Over the year since its inception, Can’t Stop Columbus has worked with more than 1,700 volunteers.

Among other things, the collaborative shipped out more than 12,000 3D-printed face shields, helped provide more than 22,000 meals (which also helped local restaurants), set up a local “shop small” collective, and provided funds for public art and performances.

Can’t Stop Columbus is still looking for volunteers. A few on the wish list: Business analysts, front end developers, app beta testers, marketing strategists and hackathon judges. Interested people can find more information at: https://lnkd.in/e4FesrU.
