The Lewiston Lions were able to donate 50 KN95 masks to the Lewiston Police Department to supplement its mandatory safety precautions for the officers. The KN95 masks were acquired through a state Lions Club International disaster relief grant.

Lewiston Lions is part of WNY Lions District, where over 1,400 KN95 masks were donated to essential employees throughout Western New York. Individual WNY Lions Clubs were able to apply to the state Lions for the KN95 masks to distribute within their communities.

Lewiston Lions also donated $500 to the Lewiston Police Department to help in its purchase of specialized safety gear for the officers.

A press release noted, “The LPD supports other community police departments as needed; without the addition of this specialized protective gear, they would not be able to provide full support.”

Police Chief Frank Previte said he was appreciative of the donations.

“We could not do what we do without wonderful community organizations like yours (Lions) to help us,” he said.

Looking to help make a difference in the community? Membership opportunities are available with the Lewiston Lions. For more information, call 716-246-1667.

Lions Clubs International is the largest service organization in the world.
