Campaign for the Future

Spring 2021


Dear CRC Friends,


I want to personally thank all of our loyal friends for continuing to support Career Resource Center (CRC) and our motivated job seekers as we are nearly a year into the COVID-19 Pandemic. Needless to say, this past year has been trying for everyone. However, we at CRC have found strength, resilience, and motivation to reinvent as a virtual service provider in order to continue providing high-quality job search assistance to our clients in this new era of job search. 


CRC was fortunate to receive two loans in Spring 2020 and Winter 2021 from the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) administered by the Small Business Administration (SBA). The forgivable funds secured provided much needed relief for lost revenue due to the pandemic and associated shutdown. However, the need to secure funding to support our ever-important mission continues to grow as unemployment and long-term unemployment continues to rise in our region. 


As you might recall, CRC celebrated our 30th anniversary in 2020. While the pandemic may have deprived us of a fabulous celebration, we were able to successfully launch our 30th Anniversary Fundraising Campaign. Our Campaign for the Future will continue for the next year with the ultimate goal of raising $150,000. I’m proud to say we recently surpassed $50,000 and are well on our way to meet our goal in 2022! However, we can’t do this without you—there is still time to make your donation this quarter. In the coming months you will continue to see updates on the progress of our campaign as this funding source is critical to sustaining our mission to Change Lives and Strengthen Communities with Confidence-Building, Results-Focused Employment Resources.


I for one cannot wait for the time to come when we can meet in person, celebrate new jobs by “ringing the bell” together, and share laughs at a networking event. Until then, we will continue to be Your Job Search Partner. 


Sending each of you safe and happy wishes this Spring,

Kristina Phillips
