Community Support Friendship Drive - Compeer Cleveland County is launching their Community Supported Friendship project in conjunction with the Open Streets, Open Hearts celebration. Community Supported Friendship (or CSF for short) is a project created in response to the unique challenge of prolonged physical isolation that all of us are experiencing as a result of the ongoing pandemic. Many of the Compeer participants do not have access to computers, internet, or smartphones that are now critical for distanced social connection.
CSF aims to provide a physical form of connection to the Compeer participants through creative gift giving and storytelling, while promoting community-wide creativity and self care practices through this unique volunteer opportunity. For more information about CSF, please visit their website.
