Thanks for Making a Difference!

The National Association of Letter Carriers held its annual national food drive this past Saturday. Stamp Out Hunger is the country's largest one-day food drive and we are grateful to the Avon Lake carriers for giving the donations they collected to the CRS food pantry! They dropped off over 2,000 pounds of food on Saturday! Thank you to all the postal carriers, the generous residents that donated and the fantastic student volunteers that helped sort the food when it arrived!
We are pleased to announce the annual “Homeruns for Hunger” event will take place on Thursday, August 4, 2022 at Mercy Health Stadium in Avon. Support CRS while watching the Lake Erie Crushers take on the Evansville Otters! Game time is 7:05 pm. Tickets are $10 each and for every ticket we sell, the Crushers will donate a portion to CRS. Visit our website to purchase your tickets or scan this QR code to go directly to the Crushers ticket purchasing website. Please use User ID: CRS2022 and Password: 2022 to ensure CRS gets credit. Call Sheila at 933-5639 for more information.

Our food pantry exists thanks to so many who generously donate. We currently are in need of jelly, individual snack foods, pods of small (40 oz.) sized laundry detergent, dish soap, and paper towels. We do not need any canned vegetables or beans right now.

Thank you for your generous support in keeping our pantry stocked!
