The Dayton Noon Lions Club delivered approximately $550.00 worth of educational, school supplies, journals and other personal hygiene items for the many children who come to Bridgehaven Children’s Advocacy Center without so much as a toothbrush.
Lion President Mike George was excited, as always, for the organization to contribute to such a wonderful organization.
“Our purpose of doing this was first to serve the local community, the second we wanted to be an example for the other local businesses and organizations to do the same thing,” said George.
The donations were made through the generosity of the Dayton Noon Lions Club members.
Family Advocate Clair Leal toldGeorgeand2ndVice-President Shanna Payne Lahti that the much-needed supplies would be divided between the Dayton location and their location in Chambers County.
Bridgehaven is always in need of donations to benefit its Rainbow Room. The room is designed with kids in mind, and every child that visits the center gets to visit the room after services are provided.
They are in need of journals, teen coloring books, coloring pens and pencils, sports balls, board, and card games, bath sets for girls and boys, wallets for teen boys, hair and cosmetic gifts, cologne and body sprays, bags for emergency items, toys for all ages, earbuds, backpacks and school supplies.
