What we did in June

I enjoy combing through the program statistics, so below is a snapshot of what CCSC's staff and volunteers accomplished last month.

  • fed 820 hungry people
  • prevented 75 families from becoming homeless or living in substandard conditions
  • helped 44 people with medical needs (prescription meds, dental needs, eyeglasses)
  • gave 258 people gently used clothing
  • welcomed 30 new clients to the JobNet program and celebrated as 7 left because they found jobs
  • graduated 38 students from the Martha's Way program, equipping them to begin their new housecleaning businesses
  • generated $29,000 in sales at the Sunshine Resale Shop (these proceeds go right into CCSC's mission)
And we are on the brink of helping 6,500 at-risk students with brand new school supplies and clothing. Are you interested in volunteering at this event? See below for details or click here to sponsor a child: It's a fun event, as you can see from this picture of Jeff Holstien, one of our dedicated volunteers who has helped to lead the program in the past.
