LifeStream and YMCA Partner for Kinship Caregiver Resources Drive-Thru

LifeStream Services and the YMCA of Muncie invite adults caring for a child relative (a niece, nephew, grandchild, etc.) to the Kinship Resources Drive-Thru. Attendees will receive valuable resources and items to assist in the caregiving of the child(ren) including shelf stable food, books, information on local resources, and more.

The Kinship Resources Drive-Thru is on Friday, November 5 from 3:30pm to 5:30pm at the YMCA of Muncie Downtown branch located at 500 S. Mulberry St. Muncie, IN 47305. The event will be located along the Howard Street sidewalk for easy drive-thru access. This is a free event and registration is not required.

“Nearly 3 million grandparents in America are currently taking the lead caregiving role in raising their grandchildren, with even more aunts, uncles, and family caregivers to add to that total,” shared Mandy Williams, Vice President of Programs at LifeStream Services. “LifeStream Services, the YMCA of Muncie, and our partners recognize the critical role that these caregivers play in children’s lives, and are glad to partner on this event to provide resources and support to family members of all ages.”

LifeStream Services understands the importance of family caregivers and the sacrifices they make to keep their loved one(s) safe and healthy. This event is one way LifeStream and partners can give back to those who give so much.
