Creston Community Mutual Aid (CCMA) is a volunteer-led organization formed in 2021 to support the needs of families within the Creston school community. Our hope is for a more equitable, sustainable, and connected community. We believe this starts with everyone being able to meet their basic needs.
A key difference between CCMA and Creston PTA is how we distribute funds. Creston PTA uses funds to support the school and student body as a whole and, therefore, can’t distribute funds to individual families. Donations to CCMA are directly distributed to families who need help with expenses like rent, utilities, and childcare.
During 2022-2023, CCMA distributed nearly $10,000 in direct financial assistance to Creston families!

You can make monetary donations to CCMA through the following platforms:
CCMA meets several times a year to plan fundraisers and organize events like clothing swaps and drives for essential items like winter boots and shoes. Also, we discuss additional ways CCMA can support the community. Stay in the loop about upcoming events and meetings through the Giving Circle for CCMA Facebook group.
