The Central Oak Park Neighborhood Association organizes many fundraisers, especially those that benefit our neighborhood schools. In September of 2018, the COPNA Board created COPNA CARES (Community Action Regarding Educators & Schools)*. This group is responsible for coordinating the fundraisers that give back to our neighborhood, teachers, students, and schools. They raise money for The Mary Baker Memorial Teachers' Fund and hold various fundraisers throughout the year to give back to our community.
