Thank You, Volunteers! Please Come Back Dec. 13th & 14th!

A few of LCAC'S wonderful volunteers.

Lakewood Charitable Assistance Corporation counts on hundreds of volunteers to show up at our holiday food distribution events. The outpouring of helpers at LCAC’s Thanksgiving events did not disappoint! People of all ages helped sort, pack and deliver turkeys, stuffing, potatoes, frozen pumpkin pies, along with nonperishable food items to 300 households in Lakewood.  

LCAC is gearing up to deliver its second round of food baskets to another 300 residents. Between now and December 12th, LCAC encourages Lakewood residents to drop off non-perishable food items at any one of the following schools: Emerson, Franklin School of Opportunity, Garfield, Grant, Harding, Harrison, Lincoln or Roosevelt.

Beginning Friday, December 13h, LCAC will rely on a community of caring volunteers. Many hands are needed to sort the canned food donations prior to home deliveries on Saturday, December 14th. Bring your family and friends. This service opportunity is open to all ages. Specific times, dates and volunteer needs are listed below.
