Thanks to the downtown merchants and their customers for their generosity!

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 often as the list of businesses participating in this year's food drive keeps growing (see below).  Many of them will be offering special incentives to their customers who bring in items for the "Have a Heart Food Drive".
