French Prairie Lions Club donates winter clothing to North Marion
The partnership between French Prairie Lions Club and North Marion School District continues with a recent donation to the school's Giving Tree.
French Prairie Lions Club President Sue Jaggers recently delivered five boxes of items for the giving tree, which collects donations of clothing items for underprivileged children in the district.
"This is the second year in a row we have been able to provide new hoodies and stocking caps for the program," Jaggers said in a press release.
The club donated 150 stocking caps in three different sizes, as well as 30 new hoodies.
The club also supports disadvantaged students through the Backpack Buddies program, having provided 140 lunches for students to take home over weekends.
Plans are in place for the club's annual vision screening in the school district Dec. 15.
