Lions assemble first aid, hygiene kits
Members of the Florence Evening Lions Club and guests assembled100 kits with basic first aid and hygiene items for distribution to deserving individuals. In a collaborative effort with Lighthouse Ministries and Courtney McGinnis Graham Community Shelter, kits will be shared and distributed as appropriate.
Kits are filled with band aids, alcohol wipes, antibiotic cream, toothbrushes, toothpaste, small comb, pen, sewing kit, hotel size soap, hand wipes and nail clip, etc,
Waylon Hilley, Club President stated, “This is what we do as Lions. Helping others as well as partnering with other organizations who share the same mindset. These efforts are enabled through generous donations and fundraising activities. One hundred percent of all monies received via the public goes back to the public. Without support, our efforts to provide a helping hand would be severely minimized. Lions thank everyone who contributed and supported this and other important service projects. If you wish to support ongoing service projects, please send donations to: Florence Evening Lions Club Foundation, 1907 Cypress Road, Florence, SC 29505.”
The Florence Evening Lions Club meets on the first and third Thursday at 7 p.m. at Lizard Thicket. Lions clubs are a group of men and women who identify needs within the community and work together to fulfill those needs.
