Carol has been involved with Step Up Ventura since 2015. She was the group’s Treasurer from 2015 to early 2018. Even after leaving the Board of Directors, she makes monthly donations in support of Step Up Ventura’s mission: Our mission is to provide therapeutic services and access to childcare and preschool, breaking the cycle of homelessness.
The COVID-19 pandemic certainly brought so much food insecurity to many households to the forefront. Because of deeply personal issues of her own, Carol decided that no one should go hungry. Since 2020, CP Bookkeeping has been making donations for every new client (bookkeeping, payroll or both) to FoodSHARE of Ventura County.
Like food insecurity for families, the COVID-19 pandemic also brought extreme challenges to businesses. Unfortunately, many businesses had to close their doors forever. Others had to be very creative (pivot) in how they provide their goods and services just to put food on their employees’ tables and to make sure their doors remained open. Main Street Moves started to allow businesses in Downtown Ventura to expand their service area to the sidewalks, allowing more room for dining and shopping, and giving visitors a chance to support Downtown Ventura businesses while maintaining safe distances. Because the local business community is so important, CP Bookkeeping has been making donations for every new client (bookkeeping, payroll or both) to Downtown Ventura Organization’s Main Street Moves program.
