Help feed a family!

As the winter approaches, CCVT clients often report a frequent lack of food security due to the increased cost of groceries and difficulty accessing food banks and other support services.

For Giving Tuesday 2022, CCVT aims to help provide 100 clients with $150 gift cards to purchase food for themselves and their families.
