Review for Christian Community Action Inc, Ruston, LA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Volunteered bagging food for Thanksgiving distribution for at least 15 years. This has expanded and been organized to become almost effortless the last few years. But still fun! This year, volunteer groups were able to switch off on tasks so the work continued... packing about 1200 bags of food in about 5 hours, and more on Sunday. I have also been a board member for ten years. CCA has continued to meet the needs of the area residents while maintaining its core mission. Over time this has expanded from emergency food and housing, to 2-year transitional housing, to advocacy training of transitional housing and neighborhood residents. All on a relatively small budget and staff.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

increased its programs to meet needs while maintaining its core mission.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

probably not change much! Just pay the staff more appropriately, and find more projects to do
