BAck to school
BACK TO SCHOOL:
Every August CSC provides brand new tennis shoes, socks, underwear, a backpack and school supplies to over 100 students.
Students also go “shopping” in the clothes room for new school clothes.
Community members “adopt a Cougar” and purchase the shoes, socks, and underwear. They also donate new and gently worn clothes for the clothes room. CSC provides the backpacks and school supplies.
CHRISTMAS ASSISTANCE PROGRAM:
Every December CSC helps volunteers to "adopt" a student and purchase a few things from their wish list. The students also shop for warm clothes in the CSC clothes room.
