  • “In the 11 years that I’ve been at Mimosa Elementary, we’ve never had a Fall Festival. Yours was so well organized and fun!!!  I truly wanted to say thank you for all the hard work of all the volunteers. You made so many of our families very happy!!!”

  • “Amy’s Holiday Party gives all of us a chance to forget about how difficult our lives are for just a few hours and enjoy time with our kids.  We would never be able to provide them with the kind of gifts and experiences they get at this party.  It is a dream come true and we are so thankful for all you do for us.  We get to feel special and our kids get to feel normal on this day.”

  • I can’t even describe how much my daughter is getting out of this incredible program. She said tonight “mom, I love it so much” after today. She is so proud to be involved with such an important organization. This is the first leadership role she has taken and it has made her a more confident leader in other aspects  of her life. She enjoys representing CCC out in the community, she really excels and wants to take part in the public speaking, and we know it will serve her well in the future. Thanks for giving her this opportunity!
