CCO is pleased to announce that we have a few events coming up this fall that we would love for you to be a part of! We are still in the process of finishing touches and details before we release flyers, but we just couldn't wait a second longer to share!
Are you looking to get active within your community and just don't know where to begin?! The summertime and warm weather are the perfect combination to get out and about, and make a difference in your neighborhood. With so many organizations it can be a bit overwhelming trying to figure out where to even start when it comes to making a difference and volunteering. Check out some options after the jump!
It's officially the first day of summer, and the longest day of the year with 17 hours of sunlight! By now you've noticed our temperatures in SoCal are soaring! In fact, this a collage of our social media newsfeeds today and we bet yours looks the same. It can be hard to plan just what to do with your kiddos on these HOT summer days so stay with us after the jump for some suggestions that don't leave you resorting to standing in front of your freezer (not that we'd judge!)
We all know a neighbor, a friend, or a family member who has fallen on hard times financially for a variety of reasons. It might even be you. With a fluctuating economy and an over-saturated job market of potential employees, providing for a family often means living paycheck to paycheck, these days.
As we're a board of seven local moms, we've noticed a common theme in posts throughout the mom groups we are a part of collectively. Many of our fellow parents and friends don't know where or how to go about applying for government aid or resources that may make all the difference in their quality of life. It can be overwhelming to know where to start, so we've researched a few programs that everyone should 1) know about, and 2) know how to go about applying for. Below you'll find links and resources for programs ranging from Food Stamps to Child Care assistance.
Have you checked out The Play Destination in Agoura? It's the perfect indoor play area for kids 6 years of age and under. The Agoura playground is recently under new ownership by a local family, Oz and Natasha, who have five children of their own!
Oz and Natasha are passionate about giving back to the community and we were honored that they selected our organization to partner with in order to help us raise funds for our community activities.
Sunday, May 15th marked our first fundraising day and we had a blast with our kids and friends. *Tip! Make sure to bring a pair of socks for YOU. Kids can play with shoes/or socks on, parents, socks only.
You've seen our posts about our Conejo Community Closet. You've donated Closet items. You've helped us sort donations. And now you're wondering.... what exactly is the Community Closet? What's next? Where do those donations go?
We have all the answers for you, after the jump!
As we begin 2016, we’re reflecting back on how grateful we are for the generosity the community has shown regarding the launch of our Non-Profit, Conejo Community Outreach.
Our flagship event, Conejo Community Thanksgiving, which will be an annual event, provided 15 local families with Thanksgiving Day meals, thanks to amazing local sponsors who donated raffle prizes, and community residents who provided their volunteer efforts, food, drop-off locations, and monetary donations.
