Our Executive Director Larry Hill was privileged to be able to join Rev. Ellis downtown on Saturday morning to distribute food as part of The Bread Ministry. Here are a few pictures.
We are pleased to announce that TCCOC has been selected by the Rho Mu Omega Chapter of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority to be the recipient of the Chapter’s canned food drive in recognition of the American Heart Association’s national effort to fight against heart disease.
Alpha Kappa Alpha has been a true partner in our efforts and we truly appreciate all of their hard work and dedication on our behalf.
TCCOC would like to thank the Rho Mu Omega Chapter of the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority for their donation of three Thanksgiving baskets for the community.
Part of being a nonprofit is networking and reaching out to the community to ask for help. Today that means more that just having a bake sale or a spaghetti dinner or raffling off a prize. Those things are still important, it gives the charity an opportunity to directly interact with their supporters; however, today the use of social media is just as important. The Internet has given nonprofits an endless stream of supporter and partners.
Today I decided that I would do some general upkeep on our Twitter account (@TCCOC) and I thought it would be a good idea to find and follow some like minded organizations. It really is impressive… the number/diversity of the nonprofit organizations that you can interact with is really astonishing. From clean water projects (@charitywater, @TheWaterProject), AIDS (@GreaterThanAIDS, @AIDSgov), environmental causes(@nature_org, @RainforestUS) , to disaster relief (@SalvationArmyUS, @RedCross) sites like Twitter have really helped nonprofits connect with supporters and partners.
While all these causes are more than worthy of your time and donations, the TCCOC would like to highlight the following organizations. These are, for the most part, based in the Washington, D.C. area, or they are the national partners of charity organizations that work in D.C.
We would like to thank John Nararro and Custom Vending (11800 Trolley Lane, Beltsville, MD 20705) for their generous donation of soda, chips, and cupcakes. Thank you very much for your continued support.
