Winter 2023

We know the holidays are a tough time of year for some and we want all of our Creston neighbors to know that we are all in this together! CNA is bringing back last year’s “Giving Tree” and this year will be even better yet. Creston neighbors showed they care for their own last year so we feel it is appropriate to rename this giving drive “Creston Cares”.  Last year our neighborhood came together to support 12 families who had asked for a little extra help. We were able to meet and exceed every family’s wish list through donations from neighbors and local businesses.


We have 21 Creston Families–60 neighbors (35 of them children)– in need of a little extra support this year. To fulfill all of their needs we are asking our Creston Neighbors to support them in a BIG way.

The easiest way to support Creston Cares is to purchase items off the wishlist and deliver/ship them to our office. If you want to shop in person or at a different retailer than what is linked on the wishlist you can do that too! If you buy an item or something similar to what is listed on the wishlist please be sure to “reserve” it on gifster or email us and we can mark it off the list.

No time to shop? No worries! Click one of the links below to donate using the app of your choice and one of our volunteers will shop for remaining wishlist items.
