District 14-E Supporting the Relief Efforts for the Flooding Caused by Hurricanes in Louisiana
The Lions of Louisiana are in need for supplies to help their communities recover from Hurricane Laura that hit the state a few weeks ago. The Lions of Pennsylvania are going to help. Here the Lions of District 14-E will be collecting the items listed below to fill our Care-A-Van. The items collected will then be packaged and transported to Louisiana in a tractor trailer truck that is wrapped with an advertisement for our Multiple District.
The following items are amongst the items needed to help the residents of Louisiana:
-Paper Plates, Forks, Spoons
-First Aid Kits
-Aloe Vera Gel
The need for this project is now so we are acting fast. The collection date for items here in the District will be Saturday, October 10, 2020. We will be gathering items in the Walmart parking lot in Delmont. Items can be dropped off to the Care-A-Van between 9:00 and 10:00 Saturday morning.
The items will be taken to the Slickville Civic Center where they will be boxed for transport to Louisiana. Multiple District 14 has a traveling advertisement that is currently going around the roads of Pennsylvania. A company has allowed one of its tractor trailer truck bodies to be wrapped with information about the Pennsylvania Lions. This company will be offering its services to transport the items that are collected Statewide during this drive effort to Louisiana for distribution.
If you or your Club is interested in participating please gather up your items to be donated and make plans to drop them off on Saturday, October 10th. If this does not work for you, please reach out to me and we will work together to make other plans to get your donations. The tractor trailer will either be picking the items up or we will have to deliver the products to them at a regional delivery point sometime during the following week.
We live up to our motto of “We Serve” by helping those in need here in our local communities but also in areas of need across the country and around the world.
Yours in Service,
