Changemakers organizing food, clothing drive

Posted: Friday, November 6, 2020

Noah Zahn, a senior at Huntington North High School and a member of the YMCA Changemakers, is organizing a food and clothing drive for families in need in Huntington County in conjunction with Love INC.

Prior to the pandemic, Love INC. had over 500 visits a month from families utilizing their services, and are expecting that number to climb in the winter months. Furthermore, Love INC. and other organizations in Huntington have not been able to do their typical collection drives, such as “Stuff-A-Truck.”

Zahn’s initiative helps fill this need by engaging high school students to pick up these donated items from donors’ houses and deliver them to Love INC. These items include non-perishable food items, winter clothing and even cleaning and hygiene products such as toilet paper, toothpaste and dish soap. All donations are greatly needed and appreciated.

To sign up to donate, please visit here. Huntington North Students will be picking up these donations from donors’ homes on November 11, 12 or 13 from 4 to 8 p.m. To remain safe, donors can also leave items outside their home or business and students will pick up item on the specified date.
