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 33rd Annual Food Drive benefiting Community Care of West Niagara is fast approaching. We know the cost of food and grocery items has skyrocketed and we also know that every little bit helps. If you are able to put out a donation of any size on Sept 17th, 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".
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 33rd year the most successful ever.
Meetings are held at the Lion’s Hall located at 4285 Mountain Street in Beamsville at 6:45 pm on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays, from September through June. If you would like to join the Lions, please click here.
*The volunteer registration link has been taken down because we have had an overwhelming response and are busy assigning positions. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Lynda directly at email@example.com
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!
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!

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.
