- Help those in your direct circle of influence, especially those who are at high risk:
- Ask what you can do to help them feel more comfortable. Consider running errands for them, moving their trash cans in and out, walking their dogs, etc.
- Consider forming or joining a co-op to help each other with childcare in the face of school closures. If you need help connecting with other moms, please contact the church office at (209) 874–2532.
- Contact our outreach team at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a volunteer to visit with someone who is sick, lonely, or needs comfort.
- Give to those in need by donating to CBC’s benevolence fund. Donations can be dropped off at the D St. office or made electronically here. Gift cards redeemable at grocery stores are welcome as well.
- Volunteer to help CBC meet individual needs in our community. To sign up as an outreach partner, contact the church office at (209) 874–2532 with your thoughts and availability.
In an ongoing effort to restock our local food banks, CBC is welcoming non-perishable food donations, such as applesauce, canned vegetables, and whole-grain cereal. To donate, please be sure to review this list of acceptable items, and simply drop your donations off at the church office between the hours of 9 AM and 4 PM, Monday through Thursday.
