This month our activities benefit the Make-a-Wish Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity with a vision to grant the wish of every child diagnosed with a critical illness. In the United States and its territories, on average, a wish is granted every 34 minutes. We believe a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides us and inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve.

Please join us to learn more about this charity and its activities, make a “wish granting wand”, and bounce on a bounce house from 5-8 p.m. at COhatch Library (752 High Street) on June 5.


Thank you to COhatch for their continued support of The Old Worthington Partnership.




Each month on the first Wednesday from 5:00-8:00 p.m.

On the first Wednesday of each month Worthington will be alive with activity. Shops will stay open late, and there will be live entertainment on Dewey’s plaza. Local lifestyle and coworking company, COhatch, will sponsor and participate in the series.

COhatch will organize a different monthly service opportunity for the community. Each month brings a new theme and a new community involvement opportunity. Activities will take place either at one of COhatch’s two Worthington locations or in its mobile workplace trailer, Mobi.

The merchants in Old Worthington will program their own specials during these monthly events, and each 1st Wednesday will be designated a DORA event. Alcoholic beverages that are available to be purchased in to-go cups at one of the seven establishments in the district so guests can explore the shops and activities.
