Pasta feast to raise dollars for the Community Resource Center

From page B3 | May 23, 2014 |

A fundraiser to help the Community Resource Center with housing, supportive services and homelessness prevention is Saturday, May 24 from 5-8 p.m. at the Veterans Memorial Building, 130 Placerville Drive in Placerville.

The evening will have a pasta feast, raffle, dessert auction and more. Tickets cost $15 per adult, $5 for children under 10; kids under 3 are free. Tickets are available at the door and at edcrc.org.

The Community Resource Center has closed its Broadway location to conserve resources and continue services to at-risk and homeless populations. The group will be using available resources to provide safe housing, supportive services and homelessness prevention.

The Community Resource Center is redefining and renewing its commitment to effectively address this marginalized population.

Founded to provide safe shelter, address the needs of the homeless and keep others in the community from becoming so, the CRC opened with a clear mission. Due to an unforeseen vacuum in available community services, the CRC became more of an emergency day center than a home-provider and homelessness prevention office. Realizing resources, money, staff and volunteer time was continually spent on daily emergency issues and not on the original purpose for which the CRC was created the founders made some difficult decisions.

Many of the services will remain intact with staff and volunteers meeting clients at various locations in El Dorado County by appointment.

For more information visit edcrc.org or call 408-460-2061.
