There are also raffle items that include wine, lottery tickets and baskets of goodies.

Celebration of Caring helps guarantee continued success of CSSMV services in the Northern Miami Valley. Local support of the event could help counsel a teen facing problems at school, give a person coping with depression a chance to work through problems, or provide companionship for an isolated senior or caregiver. The impact of CSSMV services is far-reaching and may just touch a family member, friend, or neighbor.
