Let’s get moving and raise some money for local charities! This year the Crest Foods Walking Club will participate in six local 5K events to raise money for the Dixon PADS Homeless Shelter, which provides temporary housing, food and services to individuals in need. The donation from our team will be used to help open a second facility, which will double their capacity!

Last year we raised $8,000 for Sinnissippi Centers, a community-based behavioral healthcare center that provides care and services to our area. Our donation is being used to help open a new Recovery Home in Dixon.

See you there – don’t forget to wear your shirt!
