MCCF Storage Units broken into, resources for kids in need stolen

May 24, 2022

An overturned MCCF storage unit

Last Friday, May 20th, we discovered that our MCCF Family Resource Center storage units were broken into. It’s a devastating experience emotionally and a severe economic loss and has put a big dent in our resources.

We always say don’t get angry, get even. Work harder and love more, but we simply can’t work any harder to help our kids this summer without you.

We try not to ask very often for help but 99 percent of our current funding is dependent on you.

Please contact us directly at or through our website if you can help. MCCF has a Gold rating from Guidestar (Candid) and serves children and families and community from Rockport to Gualala and inland to Comptche. For 30 years we have been saying yes with your help.

If you are able to donate, here is an opportunity to do so. MCCF is the best of all us coming together.

We are not red or blue, we are you; a community hit hard by economic disparity, and facing an ever-changing pandemic, drought, wildfires, and too few resources.

MCCF has been your advocate for children and families, seniors, underserved community members, and community wellness for 30 years. MCCF thrives because of your support.

Useful and valuable items destined for kids, gone.

Children are suffering right now. If we can agree on one thing, it is this. Childhood cannot be deferred. We are asking you to focus on this, please.

MCCF has hundreds of local children who need help so they can play safely outside this summer. We lost critical resources for our kids. Kids cannot lose another summer. We need you to respond now.

Any amount is a help. We chose not to fund raise this Spring because of Ukraine but we are at a tipping point.

Gift cards to local stores and restaurants, gas cards for medical mileage are also incredibly helpful.

We can only help kids with your help.

Checks can be mailed to

PO Box 1616
Mendocino, CA 95460
