Annual Appeal

November 2021

Dear Friend of Crown Point,

For over 30 years Crown Point Ecology Center has been growing fresh, certified organic produce to feed people in our community experiencing food insecurity. Through Crown Point's First Fruits Initiative, a priority beginning with our founders The Dominican Sisters of Peace, a significant portion of our annual harvest is donated to The Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank for distribution to those in need of fresh and nutritious produce.

During the past two years, the Coronavirus pandemic has caused heightened levels of food insecurity and hunger in our community, which has strengthened Crown Point's commitment and responsibility to help alleviate hunger. As the need for fresh produce increases, we have increased our donations.

Yet, we can do more with YOUR help.

Available land within our 10-acre farm can be expanded upon, which will allow us to grow more.

To accomplish this, additional resources are required - Increasing the amount of Farm Interns, investing in equipment that supports sustainable land use and organic seed and soil amendments.

We now invite you to help us move forward with expanded food production as we prepare for the 2022 growing season. Your generous donation can provide the following:

With your generous donation to our Annual Appeal, please know that your help can make expanded growing and donation a reality. Those suffering from food insecurity in our community will be the grateful beneficiaries.
