CRS received $10,000 from the proceeds of the sale. Read more.

A huge thank you to all who contributed to our annual coat/warm clothing drive this week. We were visited by 83 families consisting of 490 persons.

The items donated were very needed and included many new items, including some gorgeous hand knit caps that brought smiles to many children’s faces.
