CCSA’S ANNUAL APPEAL HAS BEGUN!  Many thanks to all of you who have given so generously this year to support the mission of CCSA! Serving our many low income families and the homeless population in San Diego has been a challenge in 2017. 1 in 5 people in San Diego are one paycheck away from affording the basic necessities of life, including food, shelter and clothing. Housing prices rise as incomes sometimes can’t keep up.

You can help this situation through your donation to our mission to help others. Please consider a donation at this time so we can continue to respond in the many ways CCSA helps those in need.

We currently have a $15,000 matching gift available for this appeal. Just think, a $35 donation becomes $70, a $50 donation becomes $100! Due to our ability to purchase food at very low prices from food banks, we can give families the food they need when they come in for service at the agency. With your support, we can give families clothing and most of all support through their difficulties.  Thank you and Happy New Year!




Many heartfelt thanks go to all the donors who provided family gift baskets for the Family Christmas Basket Program, the gift bag items and gift cards for the Homeless Christmas Program, and the many “extra” food baskets and gift cards for those clients not registered for the Christmas Programs but who come in right before Christmas for assistance. Family baskets were provided to 213 families, and the Homeless gift bags are currently at 120+ bags!  

We would be remiss not to thank all our “Santa elves” that assisted during the family gift basket drop offs and distribution over a two day period.  To Dan, Marianne, Rick, Phyllis, Sean, Jane, Alice, Juan, Sara, Annie, Carol, John, Tracy, Richard and Laura, Connie, Juana and Becki, you folks rock!!  You were inspiring from beginning to end for this year’s Christmas Program outreach.  You truly shared the meaning of Christmas!  A most special thank you to St. Mark’s Methodist Church for hosting this event in their social hall.  The biggest thank you goes to all the donors in our member churches and San Diego community who made this program possible!  Your generosity was amazing!  This truly was a “community effort”!! Merry Christmas!!



Many, many thanks to those from the Bay Park neighborhoods in the Clairemont community who generously donated food, and to all the volunteers who energetically gave their time and good cheer, at the 13th annual Bay Park Food Drive on Saturday December 2, 2017.  Donations from this drive will go directly to those in need in our community. 

A special thank you to Maryann Augustine from Frontline Real Estate office who organized this large community effort.  You are more than awesome!  Over 150 cartons overflowed with food donations!  On behalf of the clients served through CCSA, may all your Christmas celebrations be as happy and fulfilling as you have helped make it for others.  

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from the Pacific Beach Street Guardians
