Founded in 2002, Community Resource Network (CRN) is a volunteer organization that collects donations from businesses and distributes them to those in need. We serve individuals who have fallen through the cracks, or are missed by other organized distribution systems. Thanks to the generosity of our participating business partners, we provide food and other necessities to over 500 families a day.
CRN is run entirely by volunteers, keeping our services free without burdening donors or taxpayers. Many of the volunteers are also CRN recipients, giving them the opportunity to work for what they receive. These volunteers earn their benefits while contributing to the community, building responsibility, and maintaining personal dignity. That which is worked for is more appreciated and better used than that which requires no effort.
CRN is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Our UBI is 602 205 486 and our Tax ID is 04-3655932.
