Community Resource Center On the Move!  |  May 18, 2017
The 25th Annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive Was a Big Success!
Last Saturday, May 13th, people throughout the country donated food by leaving it by their mailbox for the letter carriers to collect. Thank you to the postal carriers and over 30 community volunteers at the Encinitas and Solana Beach postal offices for collecting and sorting over 25,000 pounds of food! Items collected will be available for local families in need who come to our Food & Nutrition Distribution Center for assistance.

Meet Paula
This past weekend was a time for celebrating mom.  Read the story of one mom, Paula, who came to CRC after being involved in an abusive relationship and needing help getting back on her feet.

She says, "Life is really beautiful. It is much more beautiful today than it has been in a long time.”
