News from Community Resource Center | July 22, 2019
Dear CRC Supporter,

Do you remember the thrill of summer as a kid? Carefree days filled with sunshine, swimming and sandcastles ...

Unfortunately, summer can be a very tough time of the year for the 1 in 6 kids in our community who are hungry. A break from school means missing out on free lunch, while parents struggle to keep the fridge filled and kids fed.

Thanks to a matching challenge from our generous donors, Ella and Han Helders, your impact will DOUBLE if you give now.

Thank you for your generosity!
John Van Cleef
Executive Director

P.S. If you have already given, thank you! To get involved as a fundraiser or host a food drive, please take a look at our Fundraising Toolkit.
