Meet out Team

Little Bottoms Free Store is made possible by the world’s best volunteers. Here are some of our servants who make this work possible.


Anne Hinze: Free Store Director

Anne oversees Free Store membership and helps lead our team of volunteers.

She loves exploring all of the fun places in Columbus—if you need a restaurant recommendation, give her a call. Anne, her husband Brian and their two sons are all proud Ohio University graduates. The Hinzes got involved with Central City after their son worked at our parent church in Athens, Ohio. She teaches first year experience classes and runs the Academic Resource Center at Mount Carmel College of Nursing in Franklinton. She feels called to be a part of this community and loves it.

Nicole Defonzo - Donations

Nicole helps organize and secure donations, everything from baby clothes to diapers.

Nicole recently moved here from MA in August of 2018 to be a part of Confluence Year, an Episcopal Service Corps volunteer program. She is an intern at Lower Lights Christian Health Center working as a Care Manager. She spends her days on the phone with patients scheduling appointments, going over patients' charts and connecting individuals to resources. Nicole has enjoyed exploring Columbus, trying new foods, meeting new people and being a part of Little Bottoms.
