CRS Rice Bowls Collection

CRS Rice Bowls Collection

Many have asked us about how to turn in their CRS Rice Bowls this year as our parish will remain closed through the rest of the Lenten season. We ask that you conclude your Lenten participation by reflecting on your family Lenten journey and experience and count the sacrificial gifts collected in your Rice Bowl.

Families may turn in their Lenten gifts in the following ways:


By Phone
Call 877-435-7277 from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Eastern Time. Be sure to tell the operator that the gift is for CRS Rice Bowl

By Mail
Please write “CRS Rice Bowl” in the memo line of your check and mail it to
Catholic Relief Services
CRS Rice Bowl
P.O. Box 17090
Baltimore, Maryland 21297-0303

Remember – CRS Rice Bowl supports hunger and poverty alleviation efforts both around the world through CRS (75% of gifts) and also here in the U.S. (25% for local diocesan efforts). This global/local connection is important as communities in the United States and around the world are both struggling with the economic impacts of COVID-19.
