News from Community Resource Center | December 18, 2019
Dear CRC Supporter,

I think we can all remember the most significant holiday gift we received. Mine was significant because it was thoughtful, priceless, and provided my family and me hope during a period of uncertainty.

You gave hope-filled moments like these through our 37th Annual Holiday Baskets:

  • A joyful smile from a child trying out his first bicycle.
  • A tearful look of relief from a mom receiving a box filled with food to provide a holiday meal for her family.

Your gifts of time, talent and treasure provided food, coats, toys, blankets and more to over 7,000 people in need this year.

Thank you for your generosity during this Season of Hope!

Kind regards,
John Van Cleef
