Roanoke Lion’s Club Supports Service Sunday with Donations
I was invited to visit the Roanoke Lion’s Club by Regina Molaschi, a Lion’s club member and preschool teacher at St. Martin’s Episcopal School to tell them about Service Sunday. Armed with brochures and flyers, I was more than happy to share the good work found in making 100 sack lunches each month for the homeless served by Union Gospel Mission of Tarrant County.
Emmie Ambrose, active in the Service Sunday ministry, also agreed to come and speak about the positive power of providing meals for the homeless. Emmie said “It’s more than making a sandwich. It changes lives.” Olivia Cabes, age 8, showed the Lion’s club some of the decorated lunch bags she had made and said that “young and old could help.”
The Lion’s club had many questions and were excited to get involved. I am proud to say that they have graciously donated a year’s supply of plastic sandwich bags, snack bags and napkins. They also joined in our January giving campaign, donating lots of bar soap! Lynda Reid, a Lion’s club member, brought the supplies the day after our speaking engagement. Lynda said, “I know you are doing good work.”
Many thanks to the Roanoke Lion’s Club members! Banding together, we are able to stretch our hands farther across the community to make a positive change in the lives of those who need our help.
