Donate gloves, a hat or scarf and get free tickets

The holidays are a time for giving, and you have the opportunity to help those in need this weekend. On Saturday, Dec. 7, the Columbus Charity Newsies are teaming up with Monster Jam for an accessories drive.

Here's how it works: Donate a new pair of kid's gloves, a hat or a scarf, and receive a free ticket to the Monster Jam show coming to Nationwide Arena Jan. 3-4.

But hurry! Only 300 vouchers are available (note: families can receive up to two vouchers). The drive will take place from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, at the Charity Newsies office at 4300 Indianola Ave. (Clintonville), Columbus 43214.
