Spotlight On:
Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month
Dating violence is more common than many people think. One in three teens in the U.S. will experience physical, sexual or emotional abuse by someone they are in a relationship with before they become adults. February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month, a national effort to raise awareness about abuse in relationships and promote programs that prevent abuse.

Remember Fred the Truck? Thanks to our generous community, we now have a refrigerated truck, Fred's partner in bringing donated food to CRC. But, our truck needs a name! Cast your vote for your favorite name for our truck. Voting ends on Friday, March 8.
