LIONS FOOD DRIVE

Save the Date for the

35th Annual Beamsville & District Lions Food Drive 

Saturday, September 21, 2024


Many people do not realize the extent of hunger’s reach in our community. Your donation of food or funds will assist with our emergency hunger relief and housing stability programs. 2024 is continuing to be difficult for many due to interest rates, cost of housing, and inflationary pressures.  

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.


DATE: Saturday, September 21, 2024
Time: 8:30 am to 2:00 pm
Location of Main Sort: Great Lakes Christian High School 

Additional Drop Off Locations from Monday Sept. 12 - Monday Sept. 18 : Lincoln Pelham Public Library - Fleming Branch & the Lincoln Pelham Public Library - Rittenhouse Branch

Or during hours of operation at both CCWN Locations


  • In memory Douglas Burton, the Beamsville & District Lions Club's 35th Annual FOOD DRIVE benefiting Community Care of West Niagara is around the corner. If you are able, please put out your donation of any size on Sept 21st, every little bit helps! Together we can fill the shelves at CCWN and ensure that all residents of Lincoln are able to put a meal on the table during these tough times. We appreciate anything & everything the generous residents of Lincoln can do to help them "Grow our Community Beyond Hunger".

Volunteer Information

Year after year we need over 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 we do each year so we count on donations from anyone who is able to give.

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.  Financial contributions are gratefully accepted, allowing us to maximize our purchasing power.
    5.  Pat yourself on the back for participating in the collection efforts of food & personal items to help your  neighbours in Lincoln!
