Members of the East Coventry Lion Cubs pose for a picture after filling the truck with over 300 food items from their food drive
The East Coventry School. led by the Lion Cubs, held a food drive during the month of November. Foods collected in the drive were used to supplement the Food Basket Deliveries at Thanksgiving time. Over 300 items were collected and packaged into delivery boxes.
The Coventry Lions Club delivered Thanksgiving Baskets to twenty-nine disadvantaged families in the Owen J. Roberts School District Area. Six teams of Lions delivered baskets in six different townships. GIANT Food Market packaged the perishable items into sturdy boxes to aide in the effort.
A turkey raffle fund raiser held through October until early November helped to raise the funds to pay for the needed food items from GIANT. There were fourteen winning tickets were drawn at the November 12th Club Meeting. Winners could claim turkeys from the GIANT store. The turkeys ranged in weight from 15 to 20 pounds.
The Lions Club will be making deliveries again at Christmas time and Easter.
