Video: Feeding the Homeless

Author: Leave A Comment

The Relieving the Hunger Global Service Action Campaign is still going strong, and we’re sharing stories of how Lions everywhere are feeding their hungry neighbors. The video above is a Lions Quarterly segment that features Lion Gwen from California. She used to be homeless, but she was able to pick herself up and now feeds the homeless in her community. Gwen serves soup to homeless people every week, and as the weather grows colder, other Lions join her to provide gloves and socks to those in need.

Check out the video to learn more about Gwen’s soup kitchen and the Warm Hands and Feet project.

How is your club participating in Relieving the Hunger this month?

Get Ready for Family and Friends Month in April!

Author: Leave A Comment

Dear Lions Family,

No one is more important than family and friends, but many of the people we’re closest to don’t know about the important work we do as Lions. That’s why I’m encouraging Lions clubs around the world to invite family and friends to join them for a special Family and Friends Month event in April.

It’s a time to show your family and friends how much they mean to you, and how much your Lions club means to the community. And it’s a great opportunity to grow your club by showing people the difference you’re making every day.

Download the Family and Friends Month flyer and share it with your club, then start planning your event for April. Don’t wait…start making your plans today!

 

Barry J. Palmer

Your International President
