This #GivingTuesday, our students need your help. For every $1 donated to support The Hawk Spot and Veterans Resource Center, four meals, or five pounds, of food is provided to help a hungry student. Making a donation this month has double the impact! From now until November 27, the CRC Management team will match up to $1,050.
Last year, in partnership with Elk Grove Food Bank Services, CRC supplied thousands of pounds of food to more than 450 students through The Hawk Spot Food Pantry and Veterans Resource Center. This partnership is a valuable resource for our students as 73% receive financial aid; nearly one third of them live below the federal poverty level and another 25% percent report as low income. They struggle to pay for textbooks, class materials, and transportation. Students who do not get enough to eat might make lower grades, have lower test scores, and have a lower chance of graduating. Often, they must make the decision to attend class or eat and are more likely to withdraw from courses. Your support today removes this barrier to CRC’s students achieving a quality education and reaching their educational goals and dreams.
Please make a gift today and double your impact.

Any contribution, large or small, truly does make a difference! With your support we can make a positive impact today in alleviating hunger on CRC's campus.
