About The Cause

As the need for food has drastically increased in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, CRER has launched a new initiative through our non-profit CRER Cares for the holiday season. This initiative is a food drive that will be benefiting Lakeview Pantry. Lakeview Pantry has been hard at work during the COVID-19 Pandemic providing food to Chicagoans in need. They saw a 400% increase in demand for their services this year and we want to do our part to help them meet that increased demand as cases continue rise and more Chicagoans experience economic hardship caused by the pandemic.

Where to drop off your donations

The week of December 14-18, we will have collection boxes for non-perishable food items at several locations across the city:

Lakeview Pantry food donations must be unopened, unexpired, non-perishable food. Items in most demand right now are pasta and mac and cheese, peanut butter, boxed cereal, oatmeal, and canned tuna. If you are unable to drop off food items to one of our locations, CRER Cares will accept tax-deductible donations and go shopping for you.
