Red Cross Blood Drive
Severe Blood Shortage,
Donors Urgently Needed
Right now, eligible and healthy donors are strongly urged to make an appointment to provide lifesaving blood products to patients. Please give now.
Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention
As the nation's health protection agency, CDC saves lives and protects people from health, safety, and security threats.
With the current public health landscape constantly evolving, it can be overwhelming to locate all the information that we want and need to know. Because of this, Community Counseling Center is striving to create a single resource that contains just that. Inside you will find a Table of Contents with an array of topics that range from virtual support groups to activities for parents and children to do together, to the facts about COVID-19.
Importance of the Data
The 2020 Census will determine congressional representation, inform hundreds of billions in federal funding every year, and provide data that will impact communities for the next decade.
Impact in Your Community
School lunches. Plans for highways. Support for firefighters and families in need. Census results affect your community every day.

Fundraising in the Time of Coronavirus:
How to Manage and Modify Your Fundraising
Over the past few weeks, we’ve all been feeling the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in our daily lives. Many of us are navigating loneliness or new routines while self-isolating at home. Others are coping with personal fears while also providing front-line services to our communities. And some of us are having a hard time coping with feelings unrelated to the pandemic. For everyone, this is an anxious and uncertain time with the future unknown, especially as information continues to change day to day.
No matter what you’re experiencing right now, know that your feelings are valid, and it's okay to take time to process them. We hope that all of you will be able to create moments in your day for deep breaths, time outside, spreading joy, and acts of self-care.
We welcome you to join one of our free online Facebook support groups, which is a safe space for you to share your thoughts and have a community of people who understand what you’re going through.

2. Set cut-off times for news consumption throughout the day.
3. When washing your hands, use those 20 seconds to think of three things you are grateful for.
4. Schedule time to go outside or to be near open doors and windows for fresh air.
