Giving Back in 2018
Throughout this year CobbleStone has worked to help provide for those in serious need. Philanthropy is an important part of CobbleStone Software’s mission, and we try to improve the lives of others each day.
Outlined below are some ways CobbleStone serviced the community over the past year:
Soup kitchen and food drive
Cathedral Kitchen is the largest emergency food provider in Camden, NJ, serving more than 100,000 meals a year. CobbleStone Software hosts a food drive, collecting canned goods for those in need.
In addition to our food drive, we go on-site to volunteer at the soup kitchen, striving to support an organization helping an entire community.

Sponsored office, well, and solar lights donation
EnviroOne is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit company promoting sustainable environmental and agricultural activities in the US and the world. CobbleStone supports the organization by sponsoring an office and donating a well every year for clean drinking water in one of the poorest countries in the world. This year, CobbleStone donated solar lights and chargers in addition to our annual contributions.
According to the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), nearly 66% of people who lack safe drinking water live on less than $2 a day. The percentage of people who meet these criteria is highest in Africa.
In Sub-Saharan Africa (specifically in Sierra Leone), over 40% of the population are without improved drinking water. CobbleStone is working to support EnviroOne in providing those in need with drinkable water to help protect their health and human development.
