While Communities are Facing Unprecedented Struggles During the COVID-19 Pandemic, Chautauqua Mall Takes Action by Partnering with Local Non-Profit Organizations

WHAT: Chautauqua Mall will host a Food and Essential Item Donation Drive from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm daily through May 16th.

Following the closings of both schools and businesses, many Americans will be turning to food banks and other non-profits for support during this difficult time. Chautauqua Mall is partnering with the Salvation Army and the Chautauqua County Humane Society to collect non-perishable items. Local residents may drop off non-perishable food items as well as essentials such as diapers, toilet paper, and soap, school supplies and dog and cat food. A suggested donation need list can be found at chautauquamall.com.

WHEN: Residents may make their donations between the hours of 9:00 am – 4:00 pm daily through May 16th.

WHERE: Residents may drop off their donations at Chautauqua Mall in the designated bins just outside the main entrance next to Planet Fitness.

WHO: Chautauqua Mall is partnering with the Salvation Army and the Chautauqua County Humane Society for this important cause. The Salvation Army of Jamestown is the largest food pantry in Chautauqua County and due to COVID-19, last month they served an additional 300 more households than normal. Chautauqua County Humane Society improves the lives of animals through compassionate care and advocacy and adopts out approximately 1200 animals per year. “We are happy to be working with the Chautauqua Mall and Salvation Army to collect donations of non-perishable goods. Our collaborations with Chautauqua Mall have always been successful and we are excited to see the community benefit from this food drive.” said Brian Papalia, Director of Community Relations for Chautauqua County Humane Society.

WHY: Now more than ever, Chautauqua Mall remains committed to serving Chautauqua County residents as a community partner. This is one example of parent company Washington Prime Group’s continued efforts to unite communities nationwide in times it is needed most.
