On February 17th, TCCOC will be visiting the seniors at Birmingham Green. In addition to Black History Month activities, we will also be providing the residents with treats. If you would like to participate or donate, please contact Larry Hill at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Great news. Earlier this month the United Way confirmed TCCOC’s participation in the Combined Federal Campaign for four local areas: the National Capital Area, the Chesapeake Bay Area, Potomac, and St. Mary’s County. If you would like to contribute to TCCOC as a part of the Combined Federal Campaign, please be sure to use our donor designation code: 28999.
The TCCOC is proud to partner with Lollipop Yarn and The Knitting Game and Other Stuff podcast to bring you our first charity raffle. In addition to a beautiful sock yarn expertly dyed to produce amazingly stripy socks without have to worry about changing yarn, the winner will also be gifted Megan Wright’s newly published Charity Sock Pattern eBook. The eBook is a $15 value and comes with 5 wonderful sock patterns inspired by and written to help support various charity organization.
Entering the raffle is easy. Just use the “Add to Cart” button below for a chance to win this wonderful gift set; each $5.00 donation will count as a single raffle entry. You may enter as often as you would like. The drawing for the raffle winner will be chosen at random and announced on the September 5th edition of The Knitting Game and Other Stuff. Entries will be accepted until 4 PM, 5 September 2012. The proceeds from this auction will go to the TCCOC to use in the metropolitan Washington, D.C. region to help the area’s homeless and disadvantage by providing food, clothes, school supplies and other services.
Thank you and good luck!

Just an FYI… There are a wide array of opportunities from working with the Boys and Girls Club, to animal rescues… something for everyone.
This program just makes me sad that our Noodles and Company here in the Fredericksburg area aren’t participating. However, if you’re close to one of the listed locations, you should take full advantage. Not only are you helping out those in need, but the return on investment (only 3 boxes of mac & cheese) is totally worth it.
Thanks to the CAFB for this opportunity, and man is Noodles and Company awesome… I love their bowls.

If you can help, the CAFB could use it. Fresh fruit and vegetables are an important part of a healthy diet, and while non-perishable items work in a pinch, there is nothing better than being able to crunch into that fresh apple or have a slice of tomato.
Today, as we celebrate the first day of spring, the Capital Area Food Bank is making a renewed commitment to provide fresh, nutritious fruit and vegetables to members of our community who are experiencing hunger – many for the first time.
Addressing the need for healthier food in our community, we are issuing an urgent appeal for your support to help us increase the amount of fresh produce we are able to distribute to our more than 700 partner agencies. Please click here to support our fresh produce distribution.
