Local Food Drives Support Community Center of Northern Westchester

CCNW recognizes those who contribute to the center and help improve the lives of families in need. Plus, check out some cool events that will benefit CCNW:

This is a time of year when people from every corner of the community band together to collect food and clothing for the Community Center of Northern Westchester, and rally to help families in need. 

Here are just some of the food and clothing drives that brought so many proud faces through our doors this month, arms full of loaded boxes and bags to give.

The people pictured here collectively brought 2,024 pounds of food to our shelves, helping to make the holidays special for many families.

Many thanks to Katonah Elementary, Pound Ridge Community Church, the Lewisboro Lions and Lissie’s Katonah Playschool for their generosity and support.

We will share more of these drives in the weeks to come.

Happy Thanksgiving!

This Saturday, November 24 at MTK Tavern, the upscale gastropub in Mount Kisco, come on down for an All-Star Rock Jam which will support the Center's holiday food and clothing drives. 

At this event, starting at 9:00 pm, MTK Tavern will collect non-perishable food and monetary donations for the Center. The  musicians have agreed to waive their fees for the evening, and MTK Tavern will donate a portion of the proceeds from the event (plus fees waived by the musicians) to the Center. 

Also on Wednesday December 5,  from 6-8 p.m., The Grand Prix along with WFAS radio will throw a holiday party at Grand Prix on Dec 5th to benefit the Community Center of Northern Westchester.

All guests are asked to bring non-perishable items to be donated to the Center. The Grand Prix will provide a complimentary buffet and a limitted number of free passes to race the go-carts.
