City of Hilliard employees and the Ohio Municipal Courts Association began collecting non-perishable food items and monetary donations Nov. 14 for the "Clerks Who Care Food Drive."

Employees and citizens of the community collected approximately seven cases of non-perishable food items. City employees also participated in "Dress Down Fridays," paying a monthly fee to dress casually on Fridays.

Through the monthly fees, several hundred dollars were collected over the past year, and the funds were donated to the Hilliard Welfare Council Friday, Dec. 19.

Blue Shoe Arts has partnered with the Upper Arlington Lutheran Church visual arts ministry to offer an Outsider Art and Folk Art exhibition.

The exhibit is on display through Jan. 8 in the second floor art gallery of the church at Mill Run, 3500 Mill Run Drive in Hilliard.

Blue Shoe Arts is a studio/gallery owned by Fairfield Industries, and supported by the Fairfield County Board of MRDD, to offer job opportunities for people with disabilities who have an interest and talent in the art field.
