CMO has established deeply rooted local connections to communities that we serve. This gives it an advantage in that it has a local feel and offers opportunities for donors from all over the country to attend small, local events, while maintaining the resources of a larger, national organization that allow for widespread name recognition and more broad – based fundraising initiatives. We believe that the outward sign of a life of gratitude is expressed in serving those in need. CMO participate and support events that make our communities a better place to live, work and attend school. We support education initiatives that would better the lives of neglected children, and aid their families during times of need. This enables CMO to establish a presence in the community.
