What a Week!
What an incredible showing of community support!
We have been so inspired by the generosity, the words of encouragement, the collaboration and the desire to do everything we can as a community to make sure no one goes hungry or without their basic needs being met.
Update on Numbers Served
Here is a quick update on how many we have served over the last two weeks. From Monday, March 16 through Friday morning March 27, we have been able to:
Feed People Through Our Food Pantry
- 2001 total individuals served (Park City 1395, Heber 606)
- 553 total households served with food
- 61 cats/dogs served 😀
Provide Basic Needs Assistance
We’ve had over 450 households sign up for Basic Needs Assistance, through which we’re able to provide assistance with rent and medical, power and utility bills. The majority of these are Spanish-speaking members of our community.
For This Week
Both CCPC campuses will continue to be closed; however, our food pantries will continue to remain open, as will our counseling services via telehealth (by appointment only).
Food Pantries in Park City and Heber
Our “Grab and Go” will continue this week. Our hours will be Monday – Friday, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. for food pickup at both campuses.
We will not be open on Saturday or Sunday.
If you need food, we need you to sign up ahead of time.
CCPC continuará operando los bancos de comida de Park City y Heber durante horas de trabajo, mientras continue la actual crisis. Los interesados en recibir comida -una vez- deben registrarse por adelantado -una vez- entre Marzo 16 y Marzo 28.
We will continue providing our counseling services.
We are offering two free sessions to new clients from now until April 1st. Our counselors are ready and waiting to help you with your mental health needs. All of our sessions are done through Telehealth.
Please contact Heather Ledbetter, our Counseling Center Administrator, who will be available to take calls, answer questions and assist in getting you scheduled, during regular business hours:
Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.
435-649-2260 ext. 1
If you find yourself in crisis, please call 833-995-1295 or go to the Park City Hospital, the Heber Valley Hospital or the Access Center at the LDS Hospital in Salt Lake.
We will also be providing some resources, tips and suggestions as to how you can maintain your mental health and wellness during this time.
How You Can Support Those Most Impacted by This Outbreak
In an effort to reduce exposure points, instead of having people drop off food, we are asking for financial support that will enable us to purchase items in bulk to be distributed through our food pantry, for the health of both our staff and guests, while allowing us to continue to feed and support families.
If you can donate financially to our food pantry, please select “Food Pantry” when donating online.
We’ve had more than 100 people apply for basic needs assistance in the last two days…
We also anticipate many of the families we serve will experience an increase in need, financial and otherwise, even after the crisis ends.
You can help with these needs through giving through our Basic Needs Assistance fund. This fund allows us to help people with things like
covering rent for a month, utility bills, medical costs, power bills, etc.
If you are able to donate to the Basic Needs Assistance fund, please select “Basic Needs Assistance” when donating online.
All volunteer shifts are still on hold for now.
Unfortunately, we are still NOT able to receive your donations of clothes/household goods, etc. as we seek to best protect you, our staff, and our whole community. So we please ask that you hold your donations until further notice. Stay tuned for updates on when we will resume this.
From all of us at CCPC, thank you for helping us meet people at their point of need.
Be safe and be well!
