Community Care


FFCC is about connecting our community to be a help and an encouragement to each other. During this COVID-19 pandemic, FFCC is providing help to over 1500 local families in need with food resources. Because of this relationship, we are often made aware of a special need that a family or individual in our community may have. We will share these needs with you here and in our bi-monthly newsletter and if you are able to help please respond.

Contact Becky Palenske for more information or to respond to a need ffccsdlocal@gmail.com


Current 'Community Care' Needs: (updated 05-1-2020)

  • Diapers in size 5 and size 6 are requested by 3 different local families
  • Gift cards such as Walmart, Target, gas cards and local grocery stores such as Stater Brothers are always very helpful as FFCC works to come alongside families to meet basic needs.  
  • A Volunteer Coordinator needed to help organize donated furniture pick-up & deliveries
  • Freezer space needed in a commercial residence for frozen food storage. You can donate a commercial freezer chest or the space to store it.
