A note about the move…
While we are pleased of what the C3 Raise the Roof Campaign accomplished, the collective total is just a drop in the bucket. Commercial real estate is expensive! We need the support of our community now more than ever. As of date, C3 has yet to negotiate a lease with a prospective landlord. However, thanks to one of our generous patrons Barbara Erickson we have been offered a temporary home at the new MARKETPLACE Store By: Gifts from the Heart (5301 Hillsborough St.) We will also be offering a variety of mobile programming options while we are in transition.
