CCA Christmas Food Drive

Looking for a way to spread your Christmas cheer during the holidays? DONATE to our CCA Food Drive! The CCA focuses on feeding underprivileged people. Any non perishable food is welcome, such as canned and boxed foods!

About the CCA

The Cristian Community Action (CCA) is an organization that helps families in need. They started as a small Bible study group in 1973 but grew into a big organization with over 150 members and more than 2500 volunteers. Some of the projects that the CCA includes are adult health center, food pantry, affordable housing, and seasonal programs.

Our Goal

Our goal is to earn at least 50 nonperishable items to donate to the CCA. We chose CCA because it was a good dependable community. We're collecting these nonperishable items for them by finding some of them ourselves in our homes, asking friends and neighbors, etc. When we receive enough items we are going to help donate and organize our items along with the CCA on Saturday.

CCA Food Pantry

12/14/15

On Saturday we went to CCA! We had so much fun volunteering. We saw what food they were running low on in the pantry and then restocked it. It was really cool to see the food we collected make a change in someone's life! Today we worked on putting the images that we took onto our presentation.
