We've had such wonderful success working with CCS (Church Community Services) the last few years, so it has been decided to continue our support this year. CCS was created over 45 years ago as a program to address issues of poverty in the Elkhart Community. Today, over 50 churches work together to support programs that benefit families, men's and women's training sessions, food bank, vegetable gardens, etc. Their website is www.churchcommunityservices.org
if you would like to learn more. They also sell gift baskets, soup/cookie mixes and warm hand-made mittens.
They are in specific need of the following items:
Diapers, wipes, baby shampoo, body wash
Toothpaste and toothbrushes
Hearty soups and ready-to-heat canned pasta meals
Box dinners (hamburger helper-type)
Canned fruits and vegetables
Peanut butter and jelly
Monetary or gift card donations are also greatly appreciated
10/1/15 Thank you to everyone that contributed to our charity this year! We had an outstanding response and the person picking up the items was very impressed and appreciative. I'm sure I will be receiving a formal thank you from Church Community Services which I will share with everyone!
