The annual Holiday Basket Drive is underway at the Community Resource Center, Encinitas, California. This outreach provides critically needed food, blankets, jackets, and more for over 1,400 local families in need! Wondering how you can change a life this holiday season? There are so many ways to participate, it is easy!
How Can You Help?
- Donate food, clothing, gently used bikes, toys, blankets, sweaters, jackets, baby and toddler items, teen gifts, and senior gifts
- Sell Turkey Tickets, just $10 helps a family in need.
- Assemble baskets
- Distribution of baskets and gifts
The outreach area is located at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. You can check their volunteer schedule and donation time frames at their website at www.crcncc.org
As we head into the holidays, and especially with the economy down, so many families are struggling and need a hand to help them up again. Although it seems resources are slim and time is precious, even just a simple donation or office drive could make all the difference. My daughter and I will be there, so perhaps we will see you. (If you have a young person under 14 that would like to assist, go through KidsKorp, a network of children that work with community projects) or contact the CRNCC directly and ask them about the family tours and children volunteer opportunities available.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving week!
