(March 24, 2010) The Club is in the process of organizing a food drive in partnership with the Lakeland Hills YMCA. Through the month of April, the club and the YMCA will have drop-off sites at variety of locations for non-food items. Consider purchasing some of these items and drop them off through the month of April. The Union Center Bank, Ely Place, off the Boulevard in Boonton, already has a drop-off box set up. The Club, along with the YMCA leaders will be standing in front of the A&P on Saturday, April 24, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to collect items.
The YMCA is collecting only the week of April 18-24, but the other locations will be collecting the entire month. So far the sites include:
Elks Club in Boonton
Mountain Lakes Community Church
Post Net, A&P shopping center in Denville and Provident Bank, Broadway
PNC Bank on Main Street in Rockaway
I will post additional locations as we are notified.
Items that the food closets are looking for include paper towels, tissues and toilet paper, soap, laundry detergent, diapers and wipes, deodorant, toothpaste, feminine hygiene products.
