The Paris Lions are looking for some help in their food
wagon. Want to help?
The Lions Club of Paris primary goal is to serve the
community we live in. One of the most
effective ways of serving the community is to assist in financing a broad range
of community needs. We operate a
food wagon and volunteer our time. What
business would view as wages and profits we view as dollars to support a broad
range of community needs. Here are some
of the service projects to our community: update Paris Lions Park; Cowan Health
Hub; Minor Sports; Guide Dogs; Diabetes research; collect used eye glasses and
hearing aids; PDHS scholarships; highway clean up and so much more.
Rarely do the demands of the food wagon match the
capacity of the club to operate the food wagon. The Paris Club is in a position of having
more events than we can manage by our membership alone. So, we hope you would consider helping in our
food wagon. What’s in it for you? There is the fun and fellowship of working
with like minded people, plus the money you help raise will go back to our
community. Membership in a Lions Club is
not required. Be a “friend” to Lions by
helping in our food wagon. This is a good opportunity for High School
students volunteer hours as well.
