Youngstown Councilwomen to Give Away Holiday Dinners to Residents

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Two city officials are helping to make the holidays more cheerful.

Councilwomen Lauren McNally, 5th Ward, and Anita Davis, 6th Ward, will help give away ham dinner boxes from 2 to 4 p.m. Dec. 20 at Glenwood Park.

Residents will be able to pick up a ham for their holiday dinners as well as an apple pie, cans of corn and beans and a box of hot chocolate. They will also be able to get a hot dog and drink at the giveaway, courtesy of locally owned coffee shop Glenwood Grounds. All items will be given away on a first come, first served basis.

“With the increased cost of groceries and the shortages being reported at food pantries across the country, we wanted to try and ease the burden for our residents,” McNally said.

The councilwomen worked with Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation and Glenwood Grounds to organize the community outreach event.

“The holidays are already such a financially difficult time for so many people. Hopefully this gesture of support will allow them to enjoy a family meal,” Davis said.
