The Mid-Ohio Food Bank

Service has been a core value or our organization since the beginning. We have donated canned goods to the Mid-Ohio Food Bank every year since 1997

BuckeyeThon aims to raise money for the kids who are treated on the Hematology/Oncology/BMT Department at Nationwide Children's Hospital.  Along with other Ohio State student organizations, OTL raises money throughout the year and comes together to participate in the annual dance marathon supporting Miracle Kids and their families.
Each year, OTL members team up to raise money and dance for the kids!
