The Country Friends Aim to Raise Funds for Legacy Campaign with Community Support

Since 1954, Country Friends has granted over $132 million dollars to human care agencies providing services to women, children, the elderly, and persons with disabilities in San Diego County. The organization celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2014.

The Rancho Santa Fe Review reports that the group aims to raise over $1 million in the next three years to pay off the construction loan on The Country Friends Consignment Shop located in the Village.

“Any gift is appreciated, whether it is a one-time gift, a monthly gift or annual donation over the three-year giving period, a legacy gift through a naming opportunity or personally engraved patio brick, or a planned gift using a financial estate plan,” Deb Cross, President of The Country Friends told the RSF Review.

Each year, the organization donates to charities that align with the group’s stated mission of helping San Diegans in need. Country Friends donated to 40 organizations in 2015 and will continue their mission in 2016.
