Many people do not realize the extent of hunger’s reach in our community. 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 32nd Annual Food Drive benefiting Community Care of West Niagara is just around the corner. We are working hard to make sure that all shelves will be restocked at CCWN. We understand that this has been another difficult year living with Covid-19 and we appreciate anything & everything the generous residents of Lincoln can do to help.
Year after year we need 200+ volunteers to successfully gather, product sort, date sort, and deliver 28,000-32,000lbs of non-perishable food items to the CCWN warehouse for the low income families we serve in Lincoln. This is the only community wide food drive every year, and it is the single biggest food drive in all of Niagara!
We are happy to say that we are partnering with Great Lakes Christian High School once again and will have the use of their very large gym to product sort and date sort the donations! Volunteers will also be serenaded by the Jasmine T!
You can 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!
Online volunteer registration is closed for 2021. Contact Lynda@communitycarewn.ca or 905-563-5822 x 3 for more info.
Thinking of Contributing?
Organizers ask residents to place donations outside their front door by 8am. Here are 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 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 over 28,000lbs of food!
5. Financial contributions are gratefully accepted, allowing us to maximize our purchasing power.
