Holiday Baskets

Give help & hope
to neighbors in need
this holiday season

Join Community Resource Center to help give help and hope to your neighbors in need during our 38th Annual Holiday Baskets. Holiday Baskets will take place as a drive-thru, contactless distribution taking place on Saturday, December 5. This year, 1,100 participating households will receive a variety of gift boxes that include non-perishable food, fresh produce, a blanket and family presents. Two hundred families with infants will also receive a baby blanket and other essentials. Holiday Baskets participants access CRC’s ongoing supportive services to receive healthy food, stable housing and safe shelter from domestic violence. Your support will help us provide food this holiday season … and into next year. Here are some ways you can get involved:


Brighten the holidays and help CRC provide food, housing and shelter to neighbors in need.

Host a Drive

Organize a donation drive or virtual fundraiser to help collect items for households in need.


Get your company or organization involved in giving back this season as a Holiday Baskets Partner.

Volunteering: In order to provide a safe, contact-free drive-thru event, our volunteer need is significantly smaller this year. Because of this, we will not be able to schedule general volunteers for this year’s event. If you are a past or current partner group, we will reach out to you by November 1 with any openings we may have. CRC is grateful for your understanding and continued support despite these changes.
