We would like to thank the Pepsico company for their continued support of our programs here at CCO. In addition to sponsoring our monthly Men’s Barbershop Events, Pepsico also conducted a clothing drive which collected suits and business attire for our residents to wear for job interviews and apartment hunting.
Today we received a donation of 900 lbs. of Quaker Foods products from the Pepsico company. Good things are happening at CCO, and it’s the participation of our community partners that helps to make that happen! Thank you!
