Lions Club & Kiwanis Lions Club
If you think the Lion’s Club just caters to your sweet tooth- Think Again.
You’ve seen us at stoplights offer-
ing rolls of candies. You may even know about Lions International’s ground-breaking work with the vi- sion-impaired. What you may not
know is that the Lion’s Club is at work everyday, right here in your community. Your donations to the Lions help provide Christmas Food Baskets to our neighbors in need, provide funds to Food Pantries in our area, donations to the Little Brothers of the Poor and Thanksgiving Pies to seniors. And this is just the beginning. Besides the Lions providing eye exams and prescription glasses for needy individuals in the community, we sponsor fund raising events throughout the year. The Lions Annual Tuscany Wild Game Dinner and Chili Cook Off among others, bring together our neighbors and help raise funds for programs within the community. So, next time you see one of the Lions out in the neighborhood, give them a smile and remember they’re working for all of us.
Become part of the Organization. Support Your Mont Clare/Elmwood Park Lions.
