For Your Safety & Ours…

During the COVID-19 social-distancing time, for your safety and ours, we encourage you to call with questions or needs rather than visiting the office if at all possible. Many of our services can be provided via phone conversation. Thank you!

2020 Alabaster Christmas Store

While the current situation doesn’t allow for us to connect in-person with those families who could benefit from the traditional Christmas “store”, there will be a drive- thru event this year! In coordination with Redeemer Church, the Christmas Store will be held: 

WHEN: Saturday, December 19th, 2020
WHERE: 113 S John Wayne Dr – Redeemer Church Office
TIME:  Anytime between 12:00-2:00pm

We will be preparing gift bags that will include Local Gift Cards, Madison County Chamber Bucks, a prepackaged food item, miscellaneous gifts and literature for families to share the Christmas Story at home.

How can you help? By making a cash donation. Checks can be written to Redeemer Church with “Christmas Store” in the memo. You must indicate “Christmas Store” in memo! Your donations will be used to purchase local gift cards and Chamber Bucks. 

We are thankful and excited to reach our community for Christ this Christmas, and we thank you for partnering with us! Please contact Ginnie Decker with questions – 515-468-0213. 

Community Resources in Service to People, C.R.I.S.P., welcomes you to join us in our goal of helping families by supporting the five Strengthening Families Concepts. C.R.I.S.P. is here for KIDS and Families with KIDS. Find more details about us at Why C.R.I.S.P.?

Contact us at 515.462.9400 to see what we have on hand and we can let you know our current quantity and prices.


Wondering how you can help? CRISP Welcomes Your Donations!

CRISP is now accepting monetary donations for the Paw Pantry. Donations may be sent to CRISP at 210 W. Green St., with Paw Pantry noted in the memo line. Paw Pantry has been able to purchase food at cost from a local grocery store and use the purchases to put together food boxes for curbside pickup for families in need.

CRISP is also accepting donations for utilities and rent assistance for its clients. These will be needed once the moratoriums on these have been lifted.

A HUGE Thank you to Tony Wenck of Factory Outlet Fireworks in Winterset for his donation of $5000 to CRISP as a result of a fundraiser this summer and a generous “round up”! 

Thanks also to the Des Moines skydivers for designating CRISP as the recipient of the monies raised in a skydiving event held in August. CRISP received a donation of a little over $1000 from the fun filled weekend! 

The C.R.I.S.P. Office Has Moved

Our new address is 210 W. Green Street in Winterset. We are located in the basement of the Presbyterian Church. Clients should enter the North church doors on Greet Street, take an immediate right and proceed down the stairs. Our hours and phone number remain the same.

Support C.R.I.S.P. Through Amazon Smile

AmazonSmile lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when customers shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate .5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organizations selected by customers.

How does AmazonSmile work?

When first visiting AmazonSmile, customers are prompted to select a charitable organization from over one million eligible organizations. For CRISP, the organization to look for and use is Community Resources in Service to People Inc, in Winterset. There is no cost to charitable organizations or to AmazonSmile customers. The prices and shopping experience are the same as shopping on Amazon.
