CROSS Services received funding from Open Your Heart this past December for three new commercial coolers. The three coolers for CROSS’ food shelf warehouse will preserve the increased poundage (from 58,000 lbs per month to 120,000 lbs. per month) of donated fresh perishable foods be able to move at least 85% of this healthy fresh food to families and individuals in need.
CROSS was incorporated in 1977 to provide emergency services of food, clothing, and housing assistance to families and individuals struggling with low- incomes and to those in a financial crisis. Over the past 5 years, CROSS food distribution has expanded from one site to 31 locations impacting more than 5,000 families each month. Thank you CROSS Services for all the amazing work you do in our community!
