Rocky Mount, Va. (January 3, 2020) – Food insecurities affect more people than we know. Hunger exists in every state, county, and community in the United States and the Franklin County YMCA is working hard to make a difference in ours.

This month, the Y is sponsoring a Friends and Family Food Drive. As part of the food drive, anyone wishing to join the Y in January can do it for free with a donation of at least three canned goods. Current YMCA members are also encouraged to donate food items and, when referring new members to join, will receive their next month free.

“You can help feed the hungry! We are asking Friends and Family of the Y to drop off non-perishable food for our canned food drive between now and the end of January,” says Jessica Thomason, Rocky Mount Branch Director, “We know people are going to join the Y for the amazing facilities and great programs. So, it was a great time to make a difference in our community while offering great perks such as no joining fee or first month fees for new members and a free month for current members who refer their friends to join the Y!”

Drop boxes are located in the lobby at each location of the Franklin County Y – Rocky Mount, Smith Mountain Lake, and Ferrum College. Food items needed include spaghetti sauce/pasta, peanut butter, jelly, canned/boxed soups and meals, canned vegetables/fruits, tuna fish, and other canned meats. Donations will be given to our local food banks and soup kitchens.  With support, community members and the Y can help hundreds of families.

For more information on this and other membership programs at the Franklin County YMCA please contact Jessica Thomason at (540)489-9622 or jthomason@franklincountyymca.org
