Circle Of Concern’s largest expenses are fresh/perishable food and short-term financial assistance for our client. In fact, 86 cents of every dollar we receive directly supports our clients through the pantry and other programs. Your financial gifts make it possible for us to meet these critical needs.
Donations can be made securely here using VISA, MasterCard or Discover.
