The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why The Capistrano Dispatch is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

Thank you to the Catholic Charities Auxiliary, South County, which got together in two small groups to assemble 250 red gift bags for the needy families in South Orange County.  The bags will be given to FAM (Family Assistance Ministries), Welcome In, St. Vincent de Paul, St. Kilian Church, Mission Basilica Outreach, Community Table, and Saint Timothy Catholic Church.  All of these nonprofits have community outreach programs and service South Orange County.  CCA South County volunteers also purchase Christmas gifts for needy families and purses for women in need.
