    Orinda Woman’s Club Vice President Alison Kling (R) presented Scott Chavez (L) from Contra Costa Crisis Center and Gigi Crowder of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) with checks in the amount of $13,200 each to support the work of their respective organizations. The Crisis Center helps people going through various crises and puts them in touch with relevant resources in the community that can help keep them alive and safe. NAMI is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. The Orinda Woman’s Club Festival of Trees fundraiser held on Nov. 15 provided the much-needed financial support for these organizations.
