Upcoming Cornerstone Needs

Thank you for helping Cornerstone and being willing to partner with us to change the trajectory of families’ lives. This month Rasmussen College is coming to make lunch for our families, Piper Jaffrey employees are going to clean up the grounds and of course we have many volunteers doing childcare, making a weekly meal, helping administratively, sewing with the kids, helping with homework and so much more!  THANKS TO ALL!
