Back to School
Fundraising Program

We fundraise all year long to buy school supplies, uniforms and new shoes for children at CCO. But this year supplies and donations are definitely down so we're asking you to please donate by August 4th to allow time for purchasing the school supplies.

All donations through the links on this page will be used to buy backpacks, school and art supplies, uniforms, shoes or other necessary supplies the children need for school. We all know the back to school shopping is chaotic, but please take a moment to help at least one child with their school needs.
