You can go to Amazon Smile on the CCSA website,, and place an order to be delivered directly to the CCSA Clairemont center. Your generous donation will be distributed at CCSA’s Pacific Beach Homeless Outreach Facility. Amazon Smile will then donate back a small percentage of purchases, and those proceeds will continue to benefit our homeless population with food, clothing, and necessities.
