More than 150 students spent 4 hours each beautifying The Miracle Garden in Columbus.
392 activity bags were made for Nationwide Children's Hospital patients.
103,680 meals were packed for hungry families in Columbus with The Pack Shack.
58 students created gratitude cards with Goodwill Columbus program participants.

29 members of Project THRIVE taught Junior Achievement programs to nearly 200 students at Livingston Elementary School.
It is an amazing experience to be part of Fisher Impact Day and to unite in service to our community. When children in foster care receive these blankets, they ask a question with large bright eyes and a big smile: ‘Someone made this for me? Why would someone do something so nice for me who doesn’t even know me?’ That is the positive impact each child receives during our work as part of Fisher Impact Day!

Fisher Impact Day speaks to our mission to be among a group of people who want to influence change in our community. Personally, I try to measure my life by the actions I can take to affect other people around me in a positive way. It’s a goal that I’m extremely passionate about and something that connects me to the Fisher, Ohio State and Columbus communities.
Cameron Zelen, student director, Fisher Impact Day
Fisher Impact Day underscores what we already know about our college community — that what makes Fisher truly special transcends the classroom. The wisdom and talent of our students, faculty and staff is rivaled only by their commitment to social responsibility and to making our communities better places to live, work and play.
