YWCA Niagara Region Food Drive

The second annual YWCA Niagara Region Food Drive is coming to a location near you! This week-long event was designed so that the people in our community could donate their time, resources, and food to others in our community who may need the extra support while going through troubling times. During the time frame of August 18th-August 25th 2022, please consider dropping off your non-perishables at the following locations so that the women, children, and families in the Niagara Region have access to well-balanced meals.

Food donations can be made to any of the following locations during their business hours. If you can’t make it to these locations, you can always donate directly to the YW to support women and children and families in our community currently experiencing homelessness.

Contact Catherine Leniarsky at cleniarsky@ywcaniagararegion.ca if you have any questions or inquires about the food drive!
