CPPA is proud to work with local charities in an effort to give back and enhance
others in our community. CPPA Cares (CPPA's Philanthropy Committee) supports
one local organization each year which is determined by the membership.
2022 CPPA CARES Philanthropy Selection
It’s a new year and we have chosen a new charity to support in 2022. In light of our current challenging times, we thought focusing on mental health would be a worthwhile endeavor for our organization.
Burgers and Bands’ mission is to stop suicide by raising awareness, starting a conversation and funding suicide prevention efforts/programming. Since its inception in 2017, Burgers and Bands has raised almost $200,000 in cash and in-kind donations through their band events, merchandise sales, silent auctions, sponsorships, individual and family donations.
Through donations, Burgers and Bands has been able to bring mental health programs into several schools and organizations in the local community. Their tag line, “You Are Not Alone,” strives to help alleviate the loneliness experienced by those who suffer from depression and suicidal ideations.
CPPA is proud to support Burgers and Bands this year. We have offered Burgers and Bands an opportunity to speak at our upcoming Peake Awards and to share their mission at our Winter Showcase. In addition, we will be supporting them at our events, posting awareness on our social media channels and providing volunteer opportunities at the Burgers and Bands events.
We hope you will take some time to welcome our friends from
Burgers and Bands and help us get the word out that
“You Are Not Alone.” We are stronger together in more ways than one! On that note, we welcome anyone interested to join our events/philanthropy committee. If you are interested, please let us know!
