Leos’ Night Project Alleviates Hunger for the Homeless

Leos distributing food and water to homeless

April is Leo Club Awareness Month! To celebrate and recognize Leo clubs, the Lions Blog will feature stories about Leo service projects around the world. Today’s story features the Penang City Leo Club in Malaysia. This Omega Leo Club was sponsored by Penang Host Lions Club over 30 years ago!

Each month, the Penang City Leo Club prepares and distributes food and drinking water to 50 homeless people. The Leos’ sponsoring Lions club (Penang Host Lions Club) finances the project.

“We intend to create awareness to the public to concern our society and people around us especially those are marginalized and neglected. Not everyone is lucky to be born into a stable home.We want homeless people feel that they are a part of our society. We share our project on social media, such as Facebook, every month and sometimes it gets people’s attention to chip in sponsorship for food.”

The Leo Club Program gives young people the opportunity to serve their communities, develop leadership skills, make new friends and have fun! Learn more about the Leo Club Program and find out how to start a Leo club in your community.
