Giving Tuesday is Here!

It’s Giving Tuesday! Join CCO for a day of giving! Giving Tuesday follows Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday. It’s a global event that’s intended to highlight ways to get involved and give to charitable organizations. Please join us in supporting CCO’s mission to “address homelessness, provide shelter, accept people, and help them find a home.”

Here are a few ways you can give…

Your financial gift will provide warm, nutritious meals, a safe shelter space, and supportive care to the families and single adults at CCO. Donations allow CCO to keep the doors open to welcome those experiencing homelessness today and tomorrow.

Christmas is on its way! We want everyone at CCO to be remembered and blessed this festive season. This year, we have two wishlists, one for the children at CCO and one for the adults. You’ll find Barbies, Lego sets, art supplies, and so much more for the kids. The adults have asked for bath sets, games, slippers, winter wear, and other wonderful gifts. Please consider making a purchase that will brighten someone’s Christmas at CCO!

Join us in raising funds for a new pair of shoes for each child at CCO. Every autumn, families sheltered at CCO, go to a local department store and the kids get to choose their own pair of new shoes! You can give to this important fundraiser by sharing it on your social media account and encouraging your friends and family to donate!

Are you hoping to get fit in 2022? If you are, Team CCO is for you. Team CCO is Cornerstone’s charitable fitness team. Team members raise funds to support CCO’s mission while pursuing their fitness goals. Team CCO events are already scheduled for 2022. The Bank of America Chicago Marathon, Shamrock Shuffle 8K, and the Chicago Tough Mudder obstacle race are a few of the great opportunities to give to CCO.

Get the word out about the good things that are happening at CCO. Consider sharing a Facebook or CCOlife post on your social media page. It’s an easy way to raise awareness and support Cornerstone’s mission.
