The Compassion Outreach Group (COG) is a special interest group of the Mother Lode Newcomers Club. The purpose of the group is to reach out compassionately to those who are in need and to make a difference in our community. Meetings are held the first Monday of every month, September through May. We are presently volunteering at the Interfaith Food Bank. We meet at 9:45 a.m. in the parking lot and volunteer from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00, then meet at a local spot for some lunch. Our group is always open and can never be too big! If you have any questions or would like to join our group, please contact the chairperson.
