MISSION AND OUTREACH
Donna Minnick's Memorial Fund used to Help the Homeless
With the blessings of Donna Minnick's family and approval of the memorial committee, bunk beds for the Men's Dormitory at the Christian Help Center and Solano Dream Center were purchased. These beds were greatly needed as a Homeless Camp in Vallejo is due to be dismantled 12-14-20.
CPC Supporting Meals in Vallejo
The Mission and Outreach Committee of CPC decided this week to allocate
some of CPC’s mission monies to Vallejo Together’s Thanksgiving meals. Our
donation of $2500 will ensure that low-income seniors, families living in their
cars, and those Vallejo residents at homeless encampments will have a full
Thanksgiving feast. Vallejo Together volunteers will be delivering meals
made by First Baptist Church and a local catering company.
- Sturdy Boxes - Costco fruit boxes or office paper boxes
- Grocery bags
- Ziploc bags (quart or gallon size)
- Monetary donations are also needed

Rebuilding Together Solano County continues to serve low income Veterans, people with disabilities and citizens of Vallejo and Solano County.
