The Lincoln YMCA CLC program at Elliott Elementary school held a canned food drive from November 7th to November 18th. The YMCA CLC Ambassadors, a student-run organization, facilitated the food drive. Over 800 pounds of food was collected by the Elliott students over the two weeks. All the food given was donated to the People’s City Mission. The YMCA CLC Ambassadors, along with all of the Elliott students, were excited to help out people in their community.
The Lincoln Y has long been the leader in health and wellness. Many health issues can be alleviated by daily exercise. Healthy living, along with youth development and social responsibility are the major areas of focus of the Y.
