The ‘CCRW Impact Award’ is part of an annual commitment by CCRW to give back to the community through charitable fundraising
At its first meeting of the new year, Clark County Republican Women (CCRW), presented Elizabeth Cerveny, executive director of North County Community Food Bank (NCCFB), with a check in the amount of $1,618.
The “CCRW Impact Award” is part of an annual commitment by CCRW to give back to the community through charitable fundraising. Each year, CCRW membership designates a local 501c3 non-profit that has a profound impact on women in our community. Contributions are raised by members with a matching donation from CCRW funds.
About 40 percent of the population served at NCCFB are children impacted by hunger because of their family situation and 22 percent of clients are senior citizens living on social security and are unable to make it each month, often struggling after major medical situations and chronic illness or cancer.
The nonprofit food bank is open twice weekly for clients in zip codes 98601, 98604, 98606, 98622 and 98675. NCCFB offers local produce, fresh meat, grains, cereals, bakery items, canned seafood and meat, canned vegetable and beans, shelf stable milk, eggs, and fresh cheese and dairy.
The food bank also holds an array of courses designed to build essential life skills and promote healthy, confident families including healthy cooking classes. More information can be found at the NCCFB website, nccfoodbank.org.
“CCRW membership is honored to present this monetary contribution to NCCFB” said Liz Pike, CCRW president. “I’m proud of our membership for selecting such a deserving organization as the recipient of our CCRW Impact Award. Funds will help those most vulnerable in our north county area.”
CCRW is a fast-growing Republican women’s organization and is currently one of the largest in Washington state. To join CCRW and be part of the impact, go to ClarkCountyRepublicanWomen.org.
