VOLUNTEERS

Volunteering

How many of us have come down to Copperleaf with the resolution that we’ll find a way give back now that we have the time, but find the options overwhelming? Your Copperleaf Charitable Foundation membership makes it amazingly easy for you to give back in meaningful and even fun ways right here at Copperleaf.  Copperleaf and Copperleaf Charitable Foundation’s broad community connections have cut through the maze of choices for you and have already selected an appropriate portfolio of charities that have been vetted and approved.  We then provide opportunities for our residents to share their time and talents with others who need a “hand up”.

Copperleaf Group Opportunities

The CCF plans group volunteer events for Copperleaf members with several of our charities.  This provides an opportunity for our members to give hands-on help and get to know the charities.

Well, there is no doubt – Copperleaf Cares!!  We are so thankful for each of you who participated to come together as a team to provide a hot dinner with all the fixings for 250 people. We appreciate the extra time you gave to shop, cook, prepare, deliver, pack, sort, wrap, tie bows and serve. There were 76 Copperleaf folks who pitched in to make this a success –this was an incredible feat! It is our pleasure to be a part of this community and share with you all the true spirit of Thanksgiving.

  • Community Cooperative – Food Preparation and Distribution

A BIG Thank You to Copperleaf members for stepping up and answering the call to volunteer your time to help Community Cooperative eliminate hunger and homelessness in Lee County. On April 12th, The Copperleaf Team of over 22 volunteers helped prepare and package meals in the Community Café and on April 13th distributed groceries to families in need at a mobile drive thru food pantry.

In February, some very dedicated ladies, led by Rae McCall, participated in the annual Copperleaf Sewing Bee where they hand-crafted blankets and pillowcases to donate to children's charities in need. CCF granted funds to this passionate group of women to purchase materials for these very special blankets and pillowcases that will surely brighten the days of some little ones that need it most. This year was a little different as some joined the group at the clubhouse while others worked from their homes. We heard from several of these ladies personally, and they have tremendous passion and pride for this wonderful annual event. Thanks to all of you who participated.
