I have been involved with CSL for about 10 years. I have raised money, donated food and clothing. What a wonderful organization this is, at my job I frequently have people come in off the street looking for help with food, housing and jobs, I always know they will get help from CSL. Recently I found myself in need of help and there they were CSL ready to help me out. I never thought I would need the help I have given in the past, but I knew that I could turn to CSL to help me through the bad times.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
recieving help with utilities and finding my spouse a job.
