Community Programs

We are proud to serve our Community.

Community Day -  

Lower Macungie Community Center -3450 Brookside Rd. Macungie 

This annual event each May promotes businesses and organizations located in Lower Macungie Township. We encourage residents to join us for many fun activities during this rain-or-shine event celebrating our community! Thank you to everyone who joined us this year! We hope you join us on May 7th, 2024 - please check back for details. 

We gratefully accept donations at the Lower Macungie Community Center to serve our community through the following programs:

Cell Phones for Soldiers - Year-round collection

We accept cell phones of any make/model/age (with chargers) - cases are only accepted in the original package. The batteries may be left in the devices - please do not discard batteries in the trash. Please see a staff member at the Community Center front desk Monday - Friday 8am - 4:30pm. Evening and weekend hours vary. Please call for availability. 

We donated 93 devices this year. Our residents have kept 1,861 cell phones from being placed in landfills while providing cost-free communication and emergency funding for military members and veterans! 

Food Drive - 

Thanks to our community, we exceeded our goal! We donated 1,076 food items to support families in the East Penn School District through our partnership with the Emmaus Rotary Club and the East Penn Food Coalition. This would not be possible without our generous residents.
