The Golden Lions Club volunteered to help the Golden Kiwanis Club and other Kiwanis Clubs pack 20,000 meals. The meals will be sent to Puerto Rico to support their recovery efforts. Over 100 volunteers participated in packing event.
Thank you fron the event organizer, "Thanks to everyone who participated in this great event. A generous sponsor has been found to facilitate the delivery of our 20K meal packs, plus an additional 20K donated by another organization, to the island of Puerto Rico! While they probably won't make it by Christmas, we hope to provide some relief shortly after the New Year.
Our collective energy was truly inspiring as we completed our mission in record time! We continue to look for creative ways to support the recovery in Puerto Rico. I'd like to update our online donation portal with pictures from the event, so please send me any pictures you'd like to share.
Thanks again for the comradery and support. I feel proud and blessed to be part of a group so energized to help those in need, especially at this busy time of year! Who knew helping others could be so much fun! You guys are awesome!"
