Through St. John's UCC, the Community Outreach Benefit project began 16 years ago when a group of parishioners set out to raise money for a member of the congregation who was plagued by extraordinary medical expenses. In that first year the benefit raised $8200 for that family.
Since that time we have hosted the COB Benefit Block Party each year and have expanded our search for those in need throughout the community.
The Community Outreach Benefit (COB) is dedicated to a mission of providing financial assistance for members of our community and beyond who are struggling with exceptional medical expenses as a result of serious and sometimes life-threatening medical conditions.
Today we have a large organizational team from many area churches and over 250 active volunteers from the Southern Lehigh and surrounding areas. To date we have raised over $715,000 for 50 families in need of assistance with devastating medical expenses.
The benefit is a wonderful entertaining day rooted in old-fashioned community spirit. It's not only an impressive fund-raiser but a step forward in bringing people together for a common goal and enriching values through a true "family entertainment experience". It is wholesome fun that promotes spending quality time together involving every generation.
The block party is held annually on the last Sunday in July from 1 PM to 7 PM and admission is always FREE. (July 30, 2017). There are games, auctions, raffles, bingo, juried artist displays, our chinese and special live auction, and our own signature food along with an open grill barbecue. One of the highlights is our hourly professional entertainment that pleases all audiences.
A shuttle service is available to and from key areas in Coopersburg. (Coopersburg Village Center & The Masonic Lodge, Charles Street in Coopersburg)
