You might be asking yourself what is Giving Tuesday? We’ve had Thanksgiving Day, Black Friday and Cyber Monday but a new tradition has begun, Giving Tuesday. The intention behind Giving Tuesday is to bring the needs of others into focus after a holiday weekend that has consuming at it’s core.
Will you consider giving to the work of CCO this Giving Tuesday? Your donation will insure that we can provide shelter and supportive services to everyone who comes through our doors.
You can Donate Now by clicking the button above.
Throughout this week we have been posting “leaves of gratitude” from our Sylvia Center family shelter residents.“We are so thankful!” This may be a surprising statement to hear from someone who is homeless and living in a shelter over the holidays but we are witnesses to the resilience and determination of our residents. We are grateful to see them rise up each day and try to take steps toward self-sufficiency and stable housing. We are grateful to be able to help them in their journey and we are grateful to you, our donors, for giving us the support we need to carry on with this critical work.
Consider giving a gift this holiday that would provide safe shelter, warm meals and supportive services for a homeless family or individual. Thank you!
The traffic will be horrendous and the lines will be endless! Skip Black Friday madness and give a gift that really counts. From the comfort of your own home you can donate to the crucial work of CCO.

The residents and staff of the Sylvia Center shelter for families have put together a Thankfulness Tree. We will be sharing some of the “leaves” of gratitude with you throughout the week. Enjoy…
“I am thankful I have Someone I can trust.”
“I am thankful for my friends and family.”
“I’m thankful to my mom for taking care of me.”
