Cooperative Emergency Outreach provides emergency assistance to residents of Washington County, AR, living in Fayetteville, Cane Hill, Elkins, Farmington, Greenland, Goshen, Lincoln, Prairie Grove, Summers, West Fork, and Winslow. We regret that we are unable to serve clients living outside of this area.
CEO is a COOPERATIVE group of churches assisting members of the community in EMERGENCY situations as part of an OUTREACH ministry.
We invite you to browse our site and learn about CEO, what we are doing in our community, and how you can help.
As CEO begins its 27th year of operations, we are thrilled to announce that CEO has commenced Saturday operations. We will begin by opening from 10-12 the first Saturday of each month, and hope to increase the number of Saturdays over time. This will enable us to better assist clients whose employment makes it difficult for them to be at our office during the week.
This also presents opportunities for those who wish to volunteer, but are unavailable on weekdays. And we need you to volunteer! The only way that we will be able to expand our Saturday openings will be to obtain weekend volunteers. Please get in touch if you can volunteer to work on Saturdays.
Our Rummage Sale a Success!
Thanks to everyone who donated, helped set up, shopped, and volunteered at the CEO rummage sale February 11. We especially appreciate the Quakers who organized the sale, and the donation of space by Rolling Hills Baptist Church. Over $1700 was raised to benefit CEO.
Razorbacks Are Winners!
CEO is once again so grateful to these young men from the University of Arkansas track team who recently donated their Saturday to hold a food drive at Harp's grocery on Crossover Rd in Fayetteville. Thanks to these Razorbacks for supporting CEO and our community!
We moved into our new facility at 1649 E. Hunstville Road three years ago.
