Join us as we come together to meet the continuous challenge of ensuring that no one in our community goes without the basic necessities which so many of us take for granted.
The Beamsville & District Lions Club's 31st Annual Food Drive benefiting Community Care of West Niagara is fast approaching. We are working hard to make sure that all shelves will be restocked at CCWN. We understand that this is a difficult year due to Covid-19 and we appreciate everything the generous residents of Lincoln can do to help.
Contributing?Organizers ask residents to place donations outside their front door by 8am. A few handy tips when preparing your contribution:
1. Decide if you are going to purchase your donation or dig into your cupboard.
2. Please check expiry dates and best before dates before donating your items!
3. Decide if you are going to place it out for pick up, or to take it to a drop off site.
4. Pat yourself on the back for participating in the collection efforts of just over 26,000 lbs of food!
5. Financial contributions are gratefully accepted, allowing us to maximize our purchasing power.
About The Beamsville & District Lions Club
The Beamsville and District Lions Club has been serving residents since 1939 and in choosing to continue the partnership with the Community Care of West Niagara we hope to make this, our 31st year the most successful ever. Many people do not realize the extent of hunger’s reach in our community. The problem of hunger is a persistent one, with CCWN providing food, clothing and emergency assistance to our community since 1967.
*Modifications have been made in order to host a safe & successful food drive. Volunteers who have already signed up will be getting an email by end of day Wednesday with more specific detials.
**A Mandatory mask order has gone into affect on July 31st, and will stay in affect until October 1st unless otherwise decided by Niagara Region council.
Year after year we need 150 - 200 volunteers to successfully gather, product sort, date sort, and deliver over 30,000 lbs of non-perishable food items into the warehouse of CCWN for low income families we serve in Lincoln. This food drive is the single biggest food drive in all of Niagara!
Sign up as an individual or as a team. Volunteers will be provided with water, snacks and lunch. Please consider coming out and being part of this fun community day! If you would like more information before registering as a volunteer, please contact Lynda@communitycarewn.ca or 905-563-5822 x 223
We are happy to announce that we are partnering with Great Lakes Christian School and will have the use of their very large gym to product sort and do a small amount of date sorting. This way we can have more stations inside and still follow social distancing.
