    During Community Resource Center’s Season of Hope, your gift will give help and hope to children and individuals who are struggling in our own community.

    All throughout the year, Community Resource Center helps individuals and families create paths to healthy food, stable homes and safe relationships.

    At our 2022 Holiday Baskets, we're serving 800 of our neighbors in need, including seniors, individuals and families, and unsheltered clients experiencing homelessness. With your help, low-income households will have some economic breathing room, so scarce dollars may be spent on other needs such as rent, utilities or transportation. With your help, children will receive a special holiday gift when they may have otherwise gone without. With your help, families can select the household items they need but can’t always afford. With your help, individuals who are experiencing homelessness will have the essentials needed for the winter season.

    This year: 

    • Households will engage in a "dignity of choice" shopping experience on December 10th, to choose new essential and most-needed items at Target in Encinitas. They will also receive a voucher to select gently-used items at CRC’s Resale stores and receive a new blanket and fresh produce. 
    • Seniors will receive special holiday gift bags delivered to them. 
    • Unsheltered clients will receive backpacks filled with basic living essentials and food items.

    Thank you for partnering with us to bring help and hope to our neighbors in need by making a gift today.
