CRRC OF CANYON LAKE INC
May 25, 2014

CRRC is an organization that is of vital importance to our local community, providing food & financial assistance, senior programs, meals on wheels, recreational opportunities, thrift store and just so much more. It is impressive to see how much the dedicated staff can do with so little. Community support is evidenced by the number of volunteers that are involved, as well as the donations that are received. Clients are served with dignity and are tutored in the ways to succeed and overcome their current situation. I am very proud to be associated with this amazing organization.

Working in the Food Pantry, I see first hand the extent to which this organization impacts our local community. While it is there to provide immediate help to those who need it most, it does not act as an enabler to people who might "use" the system. Both employees and volunteers treat the clients with respect and compassion, always looking for ways to better help people in the way they need it most. It is an amazing organization run by some amazing people.

I am proud to serve on this organization which provides such vital services in our community. Crisis programs are made available , along with meals on wheels, the food pantry, durable medical equipment, job search counseling, senior services, as well as a variety of recreational opportunites for young and old alike. All of this is accomplished with a small staff and a corps of willing volunteers who all demonstrate both compassion and respect for those in need. While addressing the immediate needs of their clients, they also try to help them improve the course of their lives. It is a uniquely wonderful organiztion.

I would like to see the organization have more funds available in order to increases their impact in the community. They do more with less than I've ever seen and I know they would wisely use any additional funds.
