The #CRCDSCares Community Initiatives for the 2020 Holiday season will support two local Rochester organizations:

Community Food Cupboard of Rochester

The Community Food Cupboard of Rochester experienced a devastating fire last week and lost a significant amount of food. This is one of their busiest times of year as they work with families throughout the community with food support. We are collecting nonperishable boxed items such as cereal, pasta and macaroni and cheese food items. For more information on this Food Cupboard visit https://rochesterfoodcupboard.org/.

Helen Barrett Montgomery School No. 50

We are collecting new books, activity books, and gift cards books (Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc) for students, grades Pre-K through 8, at the Helen Barrett Montgomery School No. 50.

CRCDS will accept donations beginning December 3rd – 17th. If you would like to drop off physical donations of boxed food or books, our collection days will be Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12pm – 2pm at the CRCDS Campus Foyer located at 320 North Goodman Street, Suite 207, Rochester, NY 14607 beginning on December 3.

If you would like to support these projects through a monetary gift, you may do so here:
