Outokumpu/Summer Backpack Food

Employees of Outokumpu Steel in Calvert, Alabama put together backpacks of food for the CSC children’s summer food program.  The group was here for meetings at Gulf State Lodge and wanted to do something as a community service project.  We are so thankful to have been blessed through their efforts.

Holy Spirit Episcopal

Holy Spirit Episcopal Church Thrift Shop recently donated $10,000 to CSC.  This gift is in addition to $15,000 donated in January.  Holy Spirit is the Presenting Sponsor for our annual Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser.  We are grateful for their continuing support for the Center’s mission to assist local low-income families with food and emergency financial aid.
