CRRC was formed by the community in 1983 and has grown into something larger, and better, than its original purpose. Meeting the community’s needs for fun, fellowship, food and financial assistance are just the tip of the iceberg for this grassroots organization.
“I’m proud to be a part of an organization that does so much for the community. As a whole, it has a good heart; and that is because of the individuals that are committed to its mission – both staff and volunteers.”
