The Joy of Giving
The CCSA Christmas Program took place at St. Marks on December 14th and 15th, 2016. Due to the generosity of Sponsors, 210 families received Christmas Food Baskets with a gift card in them. The baskets were beautiful but more important was the joy and appreciation of families when they picked them up. A BIG THANK YOU to all Sponsors who brought their baskets of love. Along with this outreach, additional families donated 44 “extra’ Christmas baskets and Gift cards to families that will be given out at the CCSA center before Christmas Day. Many thanks as well to all the donors who brought supplies to fill 153 Homeless gift bags for those who live in very difficult circumstances. The additional gift card this year in those bags put a lot of smiles on their faces as they received their Christmas gift bag. Again, your generosity and sharing the love of helping those in need made a positive difference for those who live on the street or in a car.
A Big thank you also to all the volunteers that made this event happen. It couldn’t be done without your support, love and deep caring. You have fulfilled the mission of CCSA during this Christmas holiday. God Bless you and please keep all those who are hungry, in need of clothes, and who need help in your thoughts over this most important celebration. Your donations CCSA make it possible to keep all our services going. Please see our website, www. ccsasandiego.org for possible ways to donate to this mission especially before the end of this year. We welcome your gift because we know the difference it makes in changing lives.
