Help the Hungry in Clairemont

CCSA is appealing to Clairemont and Bay Park residents.  Due to a tremendous increase in clients that have come for assistance over the last month, we are experiencing a serious need to re-stock our shelves to meet all the needs.  The number of people we have served has dramatically spiked over the last few weeks.  Our food supply is very low. We can't even get more from the Food Bank as they have a low supply right now also.  

If you think you can help in some way with any food donations, we would very much appreciate it.  The .99 cent store can make it less costly.  Big Lots is helpful also on pricing.  The food items that are a priority are canned fruits, macaroni and cheese, spaghetti sauce, snack items, canned stew.

If you can make a donation, please drop it off at the Clairemont office at 4167 Rappahannock Ave.  (across from the park on the corner of Clairemont Drive)

Many thanks from the CCSA clients in need.  Please pass this on to any local friends that would consider making a food donation. If any of you blog or can circulate this on Facebook, please do.

With sincere appreciation!  Any and all donations do make a difference.
