COA Strong All Summer Long – July 2022 Newsletter
Community Outreach Alliance continues to grow stronger each day and we are excited for what the future holds. We have had a few years of challenges, restructuring and rebranding. We have a strong team of dedicated board members, advisory committee, volunteers and amazing support from the community.
Through Food Connection, we continue to strive towards our goal of helping to feed and care for more people. We help serve food to hundreds of local families, seniors and military families.
Through COA Entertainment many youth and young adults are able to flourish and share their passion of music and because of our music outreach program, we can share about the resources available in the community with those we partner with that have similar goals.
Community Outreach Alliance has joined forces with The Noble Path Foundation and we are so excited to have them in the community to help support our youth and young adults.
On June 24th was the Ribbon Cutting ceremony for The Noble Path Foundation at their building and they received many Certificates of Recognition!
Many from the San Clemente Chamber of Commerce and others in the community were in attendance, including Molly Flores (COA Food Connection Lead) and Joanie Angeli (COA Entertainment Lead)
Teri Steel gave a great talk! It’s wonderful how The Noble Path Foundation has the Aim High Program and so many activities, including free guitar lessons, to offer youth and young adults in the community. We love being their community partner. COA Food Connection provides some food for their social activities & COA Entertainment offers some performers for live music to The Noble Path Foundation during events.

We want to thank the Exchange Club of San Clemente for their recent generous donation to COA Community Outreach Alliance. We are so grateful to receive this donation so we can continue to reach more people for our programs Food Connection and COA Entertainment. We had the honor of meeting with Don Brown and Beth Apodaca from the Exchange Club of San Clemente at the June 13th Food Connection distribution. We are thankful to receive this donation and value our relationship with the Exchange Club of San Clemente.

We want to graciously thank the National Charity League for coming out to COA’s last Food Connection food distribution last week to help volunteer and donate a check to our non-profit. We are excited to be able to help feed more people in our community, families, seniors and military families. We are so thankful for all the amazing volunteers, lead volunteers (Dawn, Molly, Sylvia, Karen) and the moms and their daughters who have come out the last few distributions to help set up, help during distribution, and tear down. We are thankful to Laura Burnes to help us to receive this donation and value our relationship with National Charity League.
