Community United Methodist Church in Cedarburg Raises $3200 for COPE!

A HUGE thank you to Community United Methodist Church of Cedarburg, to Pastor Dave and Pat Morrissey for raising $3200 for COPE this spring! Through a Car Wash event, presentations at the church and an event with the Youth Group, CUMC enabled COPE to generate awareness for our agency and the church really came out to support us. We are overwhelmed with gratitude.
