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
  • Office supplies to help keep our operations costs low

Donations of the above items only may be dropped off in the alley behind our building at the following times:

Monday-Friday 8:30am-3:30pm
(Please note, these are not the hours for dropping off donations to our Resale Stores.)

If you would like to host a food drive, please call (760) 753-8300 x 1404.

For information on donations to our resale stores, including days and times for drop-offs, please visit our Resale Stores page. Please do not drop off resale store items at our office or back alley.

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.
