Over 4,000 individuals will enjoy holiday meals this December due to the generosity of our sponsor MidwestOne Bank, our community, and the efforts of volunteers and staff at CommUnity Crisis Services and Food Bank, formerly The Crisis Center.
The need for food in our community continues to grow and so do the prices at the supermarket. A $25 donation will purchase a complete holiday meal for a local family in need. Donations will be accepted through the end of the year.
