Help the Columbus Saints Recover From Major Theft
Saints trailer stolen with major instruments, and uniforms missing.
The Columbus Saints received devastating news this morning that the trailer which stored our instruments and equipment was stolen from the United Faith International Church parking lot. We are working with the Mifflin Township Police Department to recover the instruments and trailer but also encourage our friends, followers, supporters, and alumni to spread the word of this incident.
In the meantime, we are hopeful but disheartened. The Columbus Saints offers affordable performing arts education and performance opportunities for young people throughout central Ohio. Last season, we performed at Sunbury Fourth of July Parade, Dublin St. Patrick’s Day Parade, and offered day clinics for Color Guard and Drumline. Although we have liability insurance, the time to process and costs of new equipment may not allow us to recover fully. The theft of this trailer is a devasting blow to the program and the opportunities we provide.
We want to continue, move forward, and participate in our community.
Now, we need your help more than ever.
- Share this post and contact the Mifflin Township Police Department if you have any information about this theft (614) 471-4494
- Donate to the Columbus Saints at http://www.columbussaints.org/campaigns/saintsrecovery/ to help us purchase and rent equipment.
- Share our story on social media and encourage the community to donate
- Help us find affordable rental equipment. The corps performs on military styled G bugles, utilizes marching percussion and mallet instruments, and electronic music instruments.
