Toy Drop Off Success
CCMPT supports Children’s Hospital of Orange County this Holiday Season! Our wonderful Associate, Samantha Deutschel wanted to spread the holiday cheer by organizing a toy drive in our office to support this Children’s Hospital. Here is Sam and Teresa dropping off the goodies for these precious kids! Not only do the donations help for the holiday season but also throughout the year for birthdays and big events such as finishing chemo and cancer treatment.
CCMPT Supports Kid’s Chance California
Sponsorship support is critical in helping Kids’ Chance of California become a successful non-profit organization. A contribution will make a difference in the life of a student whose educational opportunities have been dramatically limited because of a serious or fatal work-related injury to a parent or guardian.

Acts of Kindness
CCMPT was excited and privileged to donate this year to very worthy causes. To name a few, we helped empower the ladies of girlventures, Speak up for the Poor which rescues children from child prostitution and child marriage in Bangladesh, and our very own Carrie Barrieau’s organization, ACT4E, which feeds the homeless every year.
Here is an update from ACT4E from their recent event:
ACT4E did our annual event this past weekend 12/27/15 providing winter coats, clothes, shoes, bags with blankets, beanies, gloves, scarves and hygiene to over 200 homeless men, women and young children in San Jose. We also had a home cooked taco bar! We had rice, beans, chili verde, chicken and beef tacos!
Here is another photo of us with a woman that is homeless we’ve known Tina for years. She sang jingle bells and helped as well during the event haha!
Jeff Stein (Attorney in our San Francisco Office) recently donated some clothes along with dress shirts to ACT4E (an organization that our very own Carrie Barrieau started) and to one of the young homeless kids that Carrie mentors with StandUp for Kids. Jeff was able to provide clothing for a job interview that the young kid had and needed interview clothes for and the dress shirts Jeff donated fit him perfect! HE GOT THE JOB! What a great new start! Thank you Jeff for your generosity and thank you Carrie for the many lives you impact by your amazing organization!
Carrie Barrieau, our San Francisco Office Manager is also on the Leadership Team and is a Project Manager for Street Outreach with Standup for Kids Silicon Valley. This organization is Nation Wide and is dedicated to helping homeless youth. The organization deals with homeless and/or street kids as young as 10 up to 24. The organization has opened a center called “The Village” which is a place for homeless youth to come get meals, showers, clothes as well as counseling services, help with job applications, help applying for schools, food stamps, health insurance, getting their social security and birth certificates and so much more. For more information on this worthy cause, please visit www.standupforkids.org. Carrie can also be directly contacted at: email@example.com.
Our San Francisco office participated in the San Francisco 5k Color Run in March. It is an event to promote healthiness and happiness by bringing the community together to participate in the “Happiest 5k on the Planet”. It was such a great and fun office team day!
Carrie Barrieau, our San Francisco office manager operates ACT4E (Active Community Thoughtfulness for Everyone). Our Managing Partner, Christian Colantoni and some of the San Francisco office staff helped with their last event. Here are some pictures from their recent event and information about this wonderful organization!
We are three sisters who have a passion for helping people and continually talked about how we could give back to those who needed it most. In 2009 we finally decided instead of talking about it we wanted to BE ABOUT IT and that is how ACT4E was created. We started by going to a local park and providing hot-meals to the homeless during Thanksgiving time, feeding more than 50 homeless individuals… As the years have continued we have been able to go from not only just serving meals but also providing clothing, jackets, blankets, beanies and hygiene items to more than 150 individuals in need in our community. With continued efforts we have been able to help several families with young children get into shelters with year long wait list as well as transitional housing.
Our hopes for the future are to be able to expand our services to our local homeless communities and continue to remind them that they are loved, there is hope, and they are not forgotten.
