Donations Impact Lives

Donations Help Support Community Members In Need
Posted on Category Stories

Staff members of our Community Alternative Response (CARE) Homeless Outreach Teams, have been collecting donated care items for many who are currently homeless throughout Marin County. They are helping to make it a little less cold and dire out there for many in need in our community. The Teams have been able to pass out socks, large waterproof camping backpacks, sleeping bags, beanies, scarves, personal hygiene items, and more thanks to generous donations from our community partners and caring individuals.

Community Action Marin has an ongoing need for donations and we're asking our community for help if you have items on our needs list that you can donate. Items below on the ‘Community In-Kind’ donation list directly support the families and individuals that we serve, while items on the ‘Agency Enhancement and Wellness In-Kind’ donation list help promote employee wellness and care and support our essential staff doing amazing work for the community. If you have any items you can donate, please email Ashley Creese at
