“Participation by attending, sponsoring, volunteering or donating auction items makes an incredibly big impact in Community Cooperative’s ability to continue helping our neighbors in need, many of whom are facing challenges making ends meet with the rising costs of gas, food and rent,” said Stefanie Edwards, Community Cooperative CEO. “With increased costs across all of our programs to meet the rising need, this fundraiser has never been more important to supporting our mission.”
