1st Annual Homerun for the Holidays Food Drive

As the Holiday Season approaches we all have many things to be thankful for.  This year has dealt everyone plenty of additional challenges.  We would like to focus on how LGYBS can help others in our community.  With many local schools and organizations being affected by Covid-19 restrictions, there is a strong need in our community to help local Food Banks.  Welcome to the 1st Annual Lou Gehrig Homerun for the Holidays Food Drive.  LGYBS have partnered up with FeedMore WNY.  They are a local Food Bank that helps support over 300 local organizations in helping feed those in need.

Starting this Friday, December 4th and ending Sunday, December 13th, LG will have donation bins placed in front of our Concession Stand at the LG Complex.  We will leave empty bins outside under the Concession Stand overhang.  Just drive up, drop off into bins and you’re done.  We will even pick up large portions from individuals if needed.  We have set a goal of 500 lbs. of non-perishable items to be collected.  As “a Lou Gehrig community” including over 50 travel teams and hundreds more in house teams, we can make this happen.  Please take a look below to see what items are in need.  Any donation, small or large will be greatly appreciated by those in need in WNY.  Please share this information as well as “Like” and “Share” on social media.

Together we can help those in need during this Holiday Season.  Thanks for your continuing support to the finest Baseball / Softball Organization in WNY.
