      Creative minds converging on the capital city

      Creative minds from all over the country are making a stop in the midlands to help beef up business for Create-a-thon.

      WEST COLUMBIA (WACH) --Creative minds from all over the country are making a stop in the midlands to help beef up business for Create-a-thon.

      During the next 24 hours volunteers will work with one goal in mind to help non profits.

      A team of up to ten people work to improve branding, website development and campaigns for service providers.

      Columbia's family shelter was one of the lucky non profits that will soon be reaping the rewards from create-a-thon.

      "I'm just really excited, i'm trying to be calm today and just know that tomorrow morning, I think it's going to be like almost a kid at Christmas or getting dessert," said Rebecca Jacobson with the Family shelter.

      This venue really allows you to creatively express yourself to do something that's really good, it's 100 % good for the community," adds Lee Price .

      Create-a-thon started in Columbia more than 15 years ago.
