CCSA donors can participate in two different Christmas programs this year. You can assist a family with a food basket plus a gift card to buy perishable food and gifts for family members. This program is for current clients only. More details here.
The program for the homeless will supply gift bags with Christmas cards, stamped envelopes, new knit gloves, new knit hats, and candy bars. More details here.
Representatives of CCSA participated in a job and resource fair sponsored by PATH (Persons Assisting the Homeless) on September 29. Read more.
