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.
