Community's generosity make drive a success

| March 9, 2023 1:00 AM

The Sandpoint Lions Club would like to convey their deepest gratitude to the amazing Sandpoint community for helping us make the 2022 Toys for Tots program a huge success.

With your help, we were able to provide special gifts to 818 children throughout Bonner County. This year was a test to our hearts. Hearing the many stories of families losing loved ones, jobs, and housing drove home the deep sense of loss our community has experienced during this past holiday season. Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, the holiday season has become a hardship for many families. We are proud of our ability to provide help to those in need and we cannot contribute to the prosperity of our community without your generous donations, especially the volunteer time.

Throughout the year, the Sandpoint Lions Club continues to help our community maintain the small-town feeling that is Sandpoint. We serve our area by creating and hosting several events for our community including the annual Easter Egg Hunt at Lakeview Park, the Sandpoint 4th of July celebration parade and fireworks display at City Beach, the Halloween maze, and a monthly bingo night. We also provide eyeglasses and hearing aids to those in need.

We are incredibly proud to serve our community. With your help and support, we will continue to serve our community for years to come. 

With our sincere thanks,

JANICE RADER
