Lions Club Does it Again

Distribution dates set for December 22 and 23

Reaching out at Christmas to help those in need in our community, particularly kids, is what “Toys For Tots” is all about. The Lions Toy Room is packed with great toys and gift certificates are available for children 13 through 16. Over 480 food boxes packed with good food items will be available for a great holiday meal with some tasty left-overs. 

Distribution days for toys and food boxes are December 22 and 23 at the Lions Den. Applicants must live within Bonner County’s Lake Pend Oreille School District #84, and application forms are available at the Bonner Community Food Bank, the Idaho State Welfare Office, and Panhandle Health. All applications must be turned in by noon on December 17. 

This year, to ensure that all those who have applied get food boxes, only those with applications on file will get food boxes until 3 pm on December 23. Late applicants will be accommodated at that time based on food box availability. 

Recognizing that it gets cold before Christmas, the Sandpoint Lions turned all coats and the coat racks over to Coats for Kids earlier this fall. This should make more room available inside while waiting for food boxes and openings to shop in the Toy Room.

Lion President Jerry Martello and all the Sandpoint Lions want to thank everyone in the community who assists and donates to the “Toys For Tots” effort. He summed it up this way, “The Lions are a small service club, and it is only with the generous support of individuals, businesses, and organizations that we can reach out to brighten the Holiday for the less fortunate in our area.”
