Christian Community Action of New Haven is a truly amazing organization. They motivate the members of the community to help each other out while also accomplishing so much for the families in need. They truly make the most of out their resources and make a real difference in the New Haven Area. They have been achieving this wonderful work for over 40s! It is always a pleasure to make donations (clothing, food, money) since I know it is truly getting to the people who need it. Keep up the great work!
I am pleased to have the opportunity to support the mission and work of CCA. I have been actively involved with the agency for twenty years. Most recently8 members of my family worked with the staff and other volunteers on the Thanksgiving Food Drive. My 7 year old Grandson has been working at this operation since he was 3. He looks forward to coming and works diligently. It is a fantastic opportunity for him to be involved with various groups in the community. i am also on the Fund Development Committee. Economics times are tough and providing needed services is a challenge.
