CPM Gives Back to the Community

Food Pic

CPM is proud to help fight hunger in our community.  To show our support, we will be holding a food drive starting on November 2 – December 31 benefiting Harvest Hope Food Bank.  A box will be set up at the front of our office where non-perishable food items can be dropped off.   Our goal is to be able to donate 2,500 items to Harvest Hope Food Bank just in time for the new year!

Please help us fight hunger and donate, any and all donations are appreciated!  For more information about the great work that Harvest Hope Food Bank does in our community, check out their website by following this link http://www.harvesthope.org

On another note, I did want to say that unfortunately this will be my last Blog post as one of your CPM representatives.  It’s been a great ride however with a recent relocation it makes sense that the torch so to speak should be passed to none other than our main girl Ferris! (Can I get a woop woop?!?)  Ferris will do a great job and I know you will love hearing what she’s got to say!

We decided to go out of order on the blogs this week in order to address what’s been going on in our city.  As I’m typing this post I don’t even know where to begin….Columbia has experienced devastation from the floods and storms this past week unlike we’ve ever seen leaving in it’s aftermath many families without food, shelter, homes and peace of mind.  For those of you in need of government assistance, please contact FEMA by using this link: http://www.disasterassistance.gov/  They will be able to help with medical, food, housing, etc.

As our great city deals with this tragedy we know that Columbia will pull through.  The outpouring of help and love from our community has been and continues to be amazing.  From neighbors housing other neighbors, from residents with boats pitching in to help others vacate the flood and from family and friends and our community joining together to help clean up this mess,  the examples of love and strength are overwhelming. These are the stories that make you believe in humanity and these are the stories that really do make it hard to fathom exactly what has and is still happening in our city.

For many, the weeks and months ahead will be difficult ones however we do know that with the support of our community Columbia will get through this.  We are COLUMBIA STRONG!
