USA Triathlon Food Drive

Reach Out Lakota is a non-profit, ecumenical, community-sponsored organization that gives eligible families in West Chester and Liberty Township food and clothing, as well as paper, cleaning, baby, personal care and household items. No one can predict a layoff, a fire, or unfortunate event. The economic downturn and cost of fuel has caused a financial crisis on some families who have never before had to ask for aid. Over 1,000 pieces of clothing and 18,000 pounds of food are given away monthly by Reach Out Lakota

USA Triathlon has partnered with Reach Out Lakota to help fill the stomachs, and provide some the necessities needed to those in times of struggle in West Chester. USA Triathlon would like to ask athletes and families to bring what they can as a thank you to West Chester Township for allowing us to use their facilities for the National Championship weekend. A SHOPPING LIST of needed items has been provided by Reach Out Lakota. Items can be brought to packet pick-up on Friday or Saturday. USA Triathlon and Reach Out Lakota would like to thank you ahead of time for all your generous donations.
