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.

Did you see us on USA TODAY on-line we did a video for Martin Luther King Day. Videos were to tell about what you think King would be telling people today. Ours was
about the need for reduce, reuse, recycle for our generation.
