Service club supports five organizations

Five deserving organizations were the latest recipients of financial donations from the Comox Valley Monarch Lions Club.

Five deserving organizations were the latest recipients of financial donations from the Comox Valley Monarch Lions Club on Friday.

Club president Lion Rick Grinham presented cheques totalling $4,000 to the Salvation Army, Santa’s Workshop, Sonshine Lunch Club, Comox Valley Food Bank Society and the CV Therapeutic Riding Society.

“The donations are timely as Christmas is approaching and the cold winter months are upon us,” said Grinham. “We invited the five groups to the Lions Valley View Estates Low Income Housing for refreshments. It was a nice opportunity for the members of the Monarch Lions Club to meet the groups who do so much for our community.”

Mayor Larry Jangula attended the event to show his support for the non-profit organizations that work so hard to help the vulnerable people in our community.

“I truly appreciate all the work and dedication the CV Monarch Lions do to help underprivileged folks,” said the mayor.

The Salvation Army kicked off its annual Kettle Campaign on Friday and CV Monarch Lions will volunteer in December to ring the bell and encourage people to donate to Salvation Army, continued Grinham.

The CV Monarch Lions Club members thank the community for their continued support of their fundraising projects.

The 911 Reflective Address Sign community/fundraising project help keep families safe by allowing emergency services locate their home easier in the dark. Money raised from this project allows CV Monarch Lions meet the pressing needs in our community including Comox Bay Care-A-Van.

By purchasing a reflective address sign you are truly helping Monarch Lions make a difference in our community. You can order your customized reflective address sign by calling 250-338-9602 or by visiting www.911reflectivesign.ca to order online.

The Comox Valley Monarch Lions Club has 36 members and meets on the last Monday of each month at noon at the White Spot. For more information or to get involved, visit www.e-clubhouse.org/sites/comoxvm.
