The North Haven Lions need help to restock the local food pantries. Please stop by our Second Saturday Service event Saturday, April 9, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., at either of our two collection locations. Donations will be accepted at the North Haven Congregational Church, 28 Church St. (across from the Town Green), and at the Washington Commons Shopping Plaza, 117 Washington Ave.
We are collecting non-perishable food, dog and cat food, pet treats and supplies, and old eyeglasses. These donations will restock the food pantries, provide supplies to Fidelco guide dogs and The Animal Haven, and support the Lions Recycle for Sight Program and Connecticut Lions Eye Research Foundation.
The following items are most in need: Parmalat Milk, juice, canned fruit, jelly, mayonnaise (30 oz.), coffee, pasta sauce (24 oz.), rice, dried/canned beans, dog biscuits, blankets and towels.
Lions International is the world’s largest humanitarian service organization with over 49,000 clubs and almost 1.4 million members world-wide. Concern for childhood cancer, diabetes awareness, the environment, hunger and vision are LCI’s primary goals. And, through Second Saturday, the North Haven Lions engage in these projects for our local community and have been serving our town since 1952.
