Supporting Our Community

The Cumberland Smile & Shine Program (CSSP) looks to our community for support to provide all of our specialized programming to Cumberland County residents. We serve over 100 families each year and all services are free of charge. We do this with 4 full-time staff, one part-time administrative position and over 70 volunteers. We strive to raise $60,000 each year in order to be able to offer all of our services. We do this through partnerships, grants, donations and fundraising. Please consider supporting CSSP so we can continue to support children here in Cumberland!
