Christmas-Flier-2015pdfcolorCCSA Christmas Program 2015

The CCSA Christmas Basket program will be held at St. Marks on Dec. 16th and 17th this year. All sponsors of families will fill Christmas baskets with non-perishable food items for CCSA clients who sign up in person at the agency by Nov. 30, 2015.  The number of families sponsored heavily depends on the Sponsor Sign Ups. This is your opportunity to share your blessings with others. The gift basket will include food for a holiday meal and a Target or Walmart gift card for perishable items so families, singles, seniors and those with special needs can enjoy a more festive Christmas meal. Don’t miss this opportunity to make Christmas special for not only your family as you gather food for your own holiday gathering, but for a CCSA family in need. Sixty-Five per cent of children in the San Diego School system are food insecure. Let’s make their Christmas a bit brighter!
