LAKEWOOD – The Chautauqua Mall is partnering with the Salvation Army and the Chautauqua County Humane Society to collect non-perishable items for families in need.

Residents are asked to drop off non-perishable food items as well as essentials such as diapers, toilet paper, and soap, school supplies and dog and cat food.

There is a suggested donation need list posted at

“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,” said mall officials. “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.”

From now until May 16, the mall is asking residents to make donations between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. everyday. There is a designated donation bin outside of the mall’s main entrance next to Planet Fitness.
