3. Business supporters

“Mankind was my business,” Marley told Scrooge. “The common welfare was my business.”

Trust and believe there will be no midnight visitations and clanking chains in our local businesses this year—or any year. They’ve been putting Marley’s words into action for COTS’ entire 30-year history.

We could say 2018 was no exception, but that would downplay how exceptional our business community is!

Our businesses volunteered, raised funds, donated goods, services, time and treasure.

Maria do Ceu, who owns and operates Out West Garage, is a longtime supporter. “We’re doing well,” she says “Business is good. We’re strong and we’re healthy. COTS reaches out to those who need it the most, and we’re so grateful to be able to help. It’s what everyone should be doing!”
