Hunger Walk 2017
This year’s Hunger Walk at De Anza Cove brought over 175 enthusiastic walkers to raise money for CCSA in their fervent effort to stop hunger in San Diego. Many participants were graciously sponsored with donations from family and friends. The warm and sunny weather was a perfect backdrop for uniting both CCSA’s nonprofit volunteers and walkers to assist San Diegans in need of compassion and support. San Diego City Council, Chris Cate, representative for City Council District 6 addressed the crowd with engaging and encouraging words during opening remarks.
CCSA Board President Brad Cannon invited all participating walkers to visit the Clairemont and Pacific Beach locations for a first-hand look at the ongoing dedication and care that has successfully driven both facilities. He also shared that many of CCSA’s volunteers joined the organization after visiting the facilities which led them to be a part of our team’s message and mission — to help all San Diegans in need.
A very special thank you to the local businesses who donated gift certificates which were used in the drawing.
CCSA is continuing to accept donations to help eliminate hunger.
2016 Hunger Walk
It was a gorgeous morning on Saturday, April 23 when youth, teens, families, and seniors walked together in unity to FIGHT HUNGER at the annual CCSA Hunger Walk at DeAnza Cove in Mission Bay. Councilmember Chris Cate for District 6 was on hand to show local government support. The Reality Changers youth group helped fill the reusable CCSA water bottles for each walker. After the 5K walk along beautiful Mission Bay, participants enjoyed snacks, listened to the Barber Shop group “Behind the Barn” and checked if their drawing ticket resulted in receiving a gift card/product from one of our generous sponsors: Big Frog, Dan Diegos Euro Café and Pub , Violet’s Hair Design, and Avati Salon.
The mission of CCSA is to assist those who are unable to obtain for themselves the basic necessities of life. The agency, with two locations, offers resource counseling to move people toward greater independence and self-sufficiency. A good time, fresh air, exercise, and community comradery was enjoyed by all while raising the financial assistance needed for CCSA to carry on its mission. Over the past three months, donations to CCSA for the Hunger Walk have reached almost $30,000, the highest ever. Thank you to all who participated and supported this event!
