Projects & Events


Monthly Member Meetings

Members and guests of the CCC meet on the first Tuesday of each month from 7:30 am - 8:30 am at the Al Hattendorf Center.  Meetings include the planning and coordination of volunteer events, community sponsorships, scholarships, grants and more.  Upcoming meeting dates are November 7th and December 5th.  


Feed My Starving Children

Twice a year our members visit FMSC and assist in preparing hand packed meals specifically formulated for malnourished children, and they ship these meals to our distribution partners. FMSC meals have reached nearly 70 countries around the world in our history. FMSC is a non for profit organization doing a wonderful job of feeding kids around the world and it is our pleasure to be able to help out in some small way.


Pack the Pantry & Make a Difference Day

During the spring and fall, CCC members host community wide events to collect products for our local pantries. Each year we have provided thousands of items for our community.  Our "Pack the Pantry"  held Saturday, October 28th was a huge success!  Donations benefit the Elk Grove food pantry.  


Toys for Tots

Each October the Marines come to our monthly meeting and bring collection boxes for the less fortunate kids. We then distribute the boxes around town to places like the park district facilities, the township hall, businesses and the like. Then at our December meeting the Marines pick up the hundreds of toys collected and take them to a distribution center to be given out. We have done this for a number of years.


Packages for Patriots

Seeking to lift morale and put smiles on faces of Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines deployed in harm's way, Packages4Patriots care packages contain treats, hygiene products, entertainment items and letters of appreciation.  Packing events held every 3rd Tuesday of the month from 7-8 pm at The Holy Spirit Church in Elk Grove Village.  Started in June of 2010, over eight thousand care packages totaling 64 tons have been shipped.
