The annual Cash4Food campaign, sponsored by the Community Christian Service Agency (CCSA) is scheduled for 15 – 30 June, 2015! CCSA provides services to low income singles, couples, seniors, families and those with special needs as well as the homeless population in San Diego County, many of whom are children and veterans. CCSA services include supplemental food, clothing, counseling and referrals.
The CA$H4Food fund is complimentary to the generous donations of food we receive from our member churches and other sponsors and is used to procure supplemental food items over the year to ensure we can provide a consistent, nutritionally balanced grocery supplement to our clients each month.
All funds donated to Cash4Food are used exclusively to procure FOOD!
CCSA has built relationships and maintains the required certifications to procure food from the San Diego Food Bank and Feeding America. Buying food through these agencies maximizes the Cash4Food fund since we can often procure needed food items significantly under the cost of normal retail stores; our average is approximately 19 cents per pound.
CCSA is recognized for excellence in managing and providing services to clients and is a distribution point for the Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP) sponsored by FEMA and approved by San Diego County Health and Sanitation Departments.
Our goal for the CA$H4Food campaign this year is to raise $28K to meet the growing need in San Diego. And we’re pleased to announce we have an offer in place to assist reaching this goal; a dollar for dollar match up to $5K! This match is good for all donations to Cash4Food received through 30 June 2015. Please assist us in receiving these matching funds and achieving our goal.
You can provide donations directly to CCSA, by mailing a check to: CCSA San Diego, 4167 Rappahannock Ave, San Diego, CA. 92117 or online via our website: www.ccsasandiego.org. If mailing a check, please annotate Cash4Food in the memo line.
This is an excellent way to help your San Diego neighbors in need. We ask for your financial support to meet our goal and please share this opportunity with others. You can follow CCSA activities on Facebook; make a post or leave us a comment. We’d like to hear from you!
