The Telephone Information Center (TIC) staff met an unexpected need at the Mid-Ohio Market at Columbus State. On Friday, November 15, they unloaded several vehicles carrying hundreds of rolls of toilet paper.

The TIC staff recently bought and collected the rolls after hearing families were in need of that necessity. In fact, it’s the most-requested non-food item at the Market. “Each year during the holiday season, we pitch in to meet a community need,” said Amy Barends, director of the TIC. “This year, we added the Mid-Ohio Market to the list. In the coming weeks, we’ll be working to help a local school food program to provide meals for students over their holiday break.”
