A PHILANTHROPIC DUO GIVE NOW
Shelli & Ron Wuerth
Residents of Columbus for 25 years, Shelli and Ron Wuerth are passionate about
everyone in our community having a place to call home.
Shelli began supporting Community Shelter Board in 2015 as a founding member
of Women Leaders, a group creating community change by connecting women
and the power of philanthropy. Since then, she’s become the co-chair of the group
and also serves as co-chair of Wine Women & Shoes benefiting Community Shelter
Board. Ron is an EveryMan member and team captain, recruiting men to join the
effort to make sure everyone in our community has a place to call home.
Having shelter is a basic human need that many of us take for granted. For
many, one event that may seem small to us can create a snowball effect that
leads to homelessness,” said Shelli, about why she and Ron see housing
stability as an important indicator of a thriving community. “Home is a place of
safety, stability, and love. It’s a place everyone should have to enjoy time with
friends and family or just relax."
As their friends and family know, you can’t pass Shelli and Ron on the street or at
a social gathering without them trying to engage you in Community Shelter Board’s
mission. “CSB has a variety of ways to get involved, so we can participate in
EveryMan and Women Leaders separately, yet know that we’re helping a
tremendous cause together,” said Ron.
