CRRC Updates Its COVID-19 Response Measures
Editor’s Note: This story was updated on March 20 to include updates from CRRC staff. Its thrift store remains open. Volunteers and employees are mostly senior citizens.
Following Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s order on March 19 to close bars, restaurants, gyms and schools, Community Resource and Recreation Center of Canyon Lake (CRRC) said on Facebook today it is closing its Rec and Senior centers on Friday and is implementing Phase II of its Emergency Preparedness Plan, which includes halting all financial assistance in order to focus its resources on the Food Pantry.
All bookings for the Rec Center are canceled for the next month. All classes are canceled for two weeks.
At the Senior Center, all activities have been canceled for the next four weeks. CRRC office staff will help as-needed.
Food pantry clients are asked to call ahead to place orders and wait in their cars for CRRC staff to bring food to them. Each client will receive only two weeks’ worth of food supplies.
CRRC’s thrift store will not accept any new donations for the next four week.
“This is a rapidly evolving situation and this situation could force us to extend the policy beyond the four weeks. The thrift store will remain open for business for the time being.”
