OJR Families Receive Easter Food Baskets!

E-mail Print PDF


The Thursday before Easter, members of the Coventry Lions Club delivered food baskets to disadvantaged families in the Owen J. Roberts School district.  The baskets were filled with food from Giant with funds generated from the turkey raffle held last October along with other fund raising activities.  The food purchased at Giant was supplemented by a food drive by the school district's second grade classes and the Lion Cubs. 

Each family received fruit (bananas, apples, oranges), vegetables (potatoes, carrots, celery) dinner rolls and butter and for a dessert - a fruit pie!  The canned goods included green beans, corn, mixed fruit, cranberry sauce, stuffing and gravy.  Twenty-five OJR families received the food items to help make their Easter a happier one. 

Five Lion Delivery Teams traveled over 100 miles to make the deliveries food to five different areas in the district.  Delivery team members were Lions Barry and Keith Bentley, Ken Swart and Leah Kinzinger, Bob Braun and Ray Bentley, Steve Shade and John Lapic and Chuck Kirschman with Soon to be Lion Mike

A BIG THANK YOU to all the volunteers who helped in this community service project!
