By Immediate Past District Gov. Regina Cecconi
The Lewiston Lions understands local food pantries are under tremendous pressure, with increased demand and decreased donations. The club was able to make donations to several food pantry locations during quarantine: Care-N-Share (Inter Community Services), Word of Life Ministries and the Magdalene Project. In addition to a monetary donation, 40 face masks were also donated to the Word of Life Ministries for distribution to those who may need one.
Local food pantries are finding it difficult to keep peanut butter, jelly and fluff on their shelves for families with children. To help with this shortage, the Lewiston Community Lions is holding a peanut butter and jelly and fluff drive from noon to 3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 23, in front of Deal Realty, 451 Center St. There will also be a bin in front of the office for those individuals who are unable to stop by and donate at the drive. Any brand of peanut butter, alternative butter, jelly or fluff is much appreciated. Please stop by with your donation and help the Lions fight food insecurity.
