TAKING STEPS AGAINST HUNGER
Our 2014 Hunger Walk was Saturday, March 15, 2014. Our current gross receipts are $25,658.63 and more donations are expected. We want to thank everyone who helped make this event a great success, especially Keil’s Food Store that donated our bottled water and Studio C who made a video of the event. More details.
CCSA will take part in the 24 hour giveBig Campaign from midnight to 11:59 pm PST on May 6, 2014. Donations by credit card of $25-1000 to CCSA will qualify the agency to receive an incentive grant from the San Diego Foundation. We will receive the same percentage of funds from the $200,000 incentive pool as the percentage is of our funds raised compared to the total funds raised in San Diego. More details. On May 6, 2014 go to www,givebigsandiego.org to make your donation.
The agency will close at noon on Good Friday, April 18, 2014. The agency is closed all day for these holidays. Read list
