Luis Canseco is CRC's Domestic Violence Education and Prevention Manager, and he has been using Clubhouse - an audio only platform - to engage in deep conversations on a variety of topics. The platform supports his education efforts: "The fact that people are not being look at through video helps them be less shy or nervous about speaking in public, which gives them confidence to speak openly and freely."

Holiday Baskets: We need your support!
This year, our 39th Annual Holiday Baskets program will serve 900 households plus 200 seniors. Households will receive food, gifts, blankets and jackets in a drive-through distribution on December 4, while holiday gift bags will be delivered to seniors. The food and other items we provide help ensure everyone has a wonderful holiday experience, while giving low-income households some breathing room, so scarce dollars may be spent on other needs such as rent, utilities or transportation.

Information on how you can help support Holiday Baskets - including donation drive wish lists, how to adopt a family, and more - is now available on our website.
