2015 Event Dates: Week of February 7th - 14th

Hunger is an issue every minute of every hour of every day.  In order to combat this issue, many of your favorite downtown merchants are hosting a "Have a Heart Food Drive" in order to stock the shelves of the Crystal Lake Food Pantry.

We encourage our customers to bring in non-perishable food items. Please click here for the Crystal Lake Food Pantry's list of most needed items.

Check back soon for a list of participating businesses.  Many of them will be offering special incentives to their customers who bring in items for the "Have a Heart Food Drive".
