A day of community outreach every month organized and initiated by C4C for the past five years. Preferably the last Sunday of each month C4C members and groups of youth visits Rose Manor Rest Home to spend time and pay homage to the elderly.

 

This is a community service mission with the deliberate intentions to foster camaraderie with our elderly forebears, to ensure that today’s youth communicate their gratitude and respect. Through conversations and providing small necessities to the elderly. Youth participants uplift the spirits of the elderly by giving them the most valuable resource of all, their time.

C4C has partnered with local businesses requiring that they recruit one 16 year old youth from the impoverished community and give them an opportunity and teach them their Company trade. Companies such as; (Brown Upholstery, Geer St. Mechanics, Urbana Catering, MAACO Painting, Rick’s Photography, Willies Detailing) are owners who has made a commitment to this initiative.
