The big orange Love Kitchen visited CCO last week. Little Caesars employees volunteered their time to make delicious pizza’s for CCO shelter guests. Preparations were made from the Little Caesars food truck parked on Clifton Avenue. What a great way to volunteer and help alleviate hunger! Thanks Little Caesars!
Got Milk? The CCO dining room serves over 500 nutritious plates of food each day and milk is an important part of the meal. Milk is packed nutrients that help kids grow and keep adults healthy.
However, iit is a costly essential. Would your church or civic group be willing to purchase milk on a monthly basis? Your gift would provide a protein-packed drink for the children, women and men sheltered at CCO.
Your donation makes a huge difference in the day to day lives of our shelter guests. Your dollars work to improve the ability of our families and individuals by providing food, shelter, transportation, medication, intensive case management services, to name just a few.
