BELFAST — The Waldo County YMCA once again is collecting nonperishable food and donations for the food pantries serving students in Regional School Units 3, 20 and 71, as well as Waldo County Technical Center and BCOPE (Belfast Community Outreach Program in Education).

Donations for all three districts can be dropped off at the YMCA, 157 Lincolnville Ave., until Friday, Sept. 17. That afternoon, the Y bus will be parked at Swan Lake Grocery in Swanville from 1 to 3 p.m. to accept additional donations. Goods and funds will be delivered to the schools the following week.

Checks should be made payable to RSU#3 Food Pantry, RSU#20 Food Pantry or RSU#71 Food Pantry.

“Last January’s drive was a huge success!” Jan McIntyre of Waldo County YMCA membership services said in a press release. “We are in hopes to match that again.  We invite everyone to join us in this community outreach to stamp out food insecurity in Waldo County.”
