Together We Can Make a Difference

Food Drive November 16 -30

Unfortunately, food insecurity in our community is real. The rising cost of groceries has put families in a tough situation. Many in our community could use our help.

Please join us to support the Trumbull and Monroe Food Pantries. We will be collecting November 16 – November 30 at the Lakewood-Trumbull YMCA.

Bring your non-perishable items to any of our Y locations, including the Camp and Family Outdoor Center, the Family Program Center or the Before & After Care school locations during regular business hours! We will have labeled collection boxes at each location!

You also have two opportunities to drive and drop your items directly to our volunteers in the Family Program Center parking lot next to the front door!

WHEN: Wednesday, November 16
We will kick off our Collection on Wednesday with a “Pack the Van” event! Volunteers will have a van parked directly in Front of the Family Program Center from 4pm – 8pm for you to drive and drop.

WHEN: Saturday, November 26
We will finish strong with a 2nd “Pack the Van” event from 8am – 12noon.

If you are interested in volunteering with the YMCA for these events or any others, please contact Amy Arnone, Lakewood-Trumbull YMCA Board of Managers at
