We’re having a CCOP Giving Sale ! !

HELP CCOP     HELP CAMDEN     HELP THE REGION

Dear Friends of CCOP,

            We have all watched CCOP work miracles in Camden: holding politicians accountable, seeing that abandoned buildings are destroyed or put to better use.  CCOP is doing the hard work training local people in the Camden neighborhoods to speak for themselves and to take action to improve their own areas and, as they do so, to make the entire region a safer and better place to live.  CCOP has kept hope alive in the darkest days.   Unfortunately, the dark days aren't oven yet.  But CCOP continues to work wonders from its small office on Federal Street.  Now CCOP is heading a campaign against violence in the city.


How can we help ? ?

Make an investment in the future.  Working miracles costs money: we can have a SALE.   We're not asking you to do the tough job; we're asking for practical help in insuring that CCOP can continue.  We have enclosed a shopping/wish list of the everyday needs of running CCOP we would like to SELL to you.    Pick one or more items.  Cover the whole cost or whatever portion that you can.  Ask friends to join you in purchasing (paying for) one of the needs of the organization.
