Holiday Baskets 2017

CRC’s 35th Annual Holiday Baskets was a great success! Thank you to everyone who gave to CRC’s Holiday Baskets through time, talent and treasure – your gifts helped hundreds of families and individuals have a brighter holiday! With the incredible support of hundreds of volunteers, local businesses and generous donors, over 1,600 families were able to “shop” for healthy food, warm coats and blankets, toys, bicycles and more for the holidays.
