To learn more about volunteer opportunities, contact your church representative, or email us.

It is only with the support of its member churches and the NWA community that CEO is able to do what it does for those of our neighbors needing help. Last year we provided food for 10,302 individuals, and over $150,000 was spent in assistance for rent, utilities, and transportation. It is gratifying that often much of that help comes from some of the junior members of our community.

Pictured below are (left and center) members of Cub Scout Pack 40 who collected 250 pounds of food and $111 in donations at Harp's Grocery on Crossover Rd; (right) a group from Emmanual Lutheran Churchbagging chicken; (bottom row) two groups of students from St Joseph's School, who spent a morning bagging beans, rice, pet food, and stocking shelves.
