Yankee Homecoming Food Drive 2024

Let’s Make 2024 the Most Successful Drive Ever!

As we gear up for another unforgettable Yankee Homecoming (YHC), we invite you to join us in supporting our community through the YHC Food Drive. This year, more than ever, we are committed to making a significant impact by helping those in need. Let’s come together and make 2024 the most successful drive ever!

Support Our Community with Your Donations

In collaboration with local food pantries, we aim to provide essential support to our community members facing challenging times. Donation bins are conveniently located at the following Dunkin’ locations: State Street, Port Plaza, and the Rotary, as well as at the Newburyport Bank in the Market Basket Plaza. We extend our heartfelt thanks to Dunkin’ and Newburyport Bank, both long-time supporters of YHC and Newburyport, for their invaluable assistance with these collections.

Throughout YHC, we will partner with different food banks each week to ensure that those most in need receive the necessary support. We encourage everyone who can help to donate the much-needed items listed below. YHC will provide collection boxes for easy drop-off, and we will arrange for the timely delivery of all items to the designated food pantry of the week.
