Thank you to the many people who donate items to support CRC. We gratefully accept:

  • Food and personal care items for our Food & Nutrition Center
  • Household and personal care items for families in our domestic violence shelter
  • Items for Carol’s House, our domestic violence emergency shelter
  • Office supplies to help keep our operations costs low

Donations may be dropped off in the alley behind our building at the following times:

Monday-Friday 8:30am-3:30pm

If you would like to host a food drive, please call (760) 753-8300 x 1403.

Donation drives help keep our programs running, but if you are unable to host a drive, we ask you to consider making a financial gift. We’re able to purchase food at a large discount, so your dollars have a greater impact. Whether you make a gift of financial support or a gift of items … we are grateful for your support!

Thank you for your support!

If you are hosting a large food or item donation drive, please contact us to let us know.

Information on donating items to our stores is available on the Resale Stores page.
