The COC Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable tax exempt organization, which provides financial support for programs such as ABC Cares, a program providing much needed assistance to low income students and their families in the ABC Unified School District.
Students and their families are provided with basic needs such as shoes, clothes, food vouchers and other essential needs to allow them to attend school and participate in school and in society.
The COC Foundation is funded by fundraising activities of the Optimist Club of Cerritos, as well as through the generosity of donors such as you.
On October 28, 2023, The COC Foundation will be conducting our major fundraising event, Optimist Masquerade Ball, at the Sheraton Cerritos Crystal Ballroom. We are looking for people like you to sponsor and attend this event to enable us to continue our work in our community.
With your help, we can continue to support the youth in our community. Please help in these much needed and worthy programs.
