Casey Fannon, acting CEO of NCB; Rich Larochelle, CDF board chair; Vernon Oakes, host of Everything Co-op; and Kirstie Boyette, Fundraising and Funds manager of CDF, commemorated the donation last week at NCB headquarters in Arlington, Virginia.
Chuck’s support of the Cooperative Development Foundation was unsurpassed. He was not only a cooperative champion, 2012 Hall of Fame inductee and longtime board member of CDF, but also an enthusiastic supporter and NCB team member of the Co-op 5k.
In his honor, CDF will recognize his work and contribution by incorporating the words he lived by into the Co-op 5k—“do well to do good.” CDF will use funds raised in Chuck’s memory through the race and other efforts to honor him by doing well to do good, especially for people and communities in need, as he did. Funds raised will support education and co-op development work to help marginalized communities nationwide.
