The Madison Lions Clubs Steps up and Helps Seniors in Need
Members of the Madison Lions Club and their families gathered together on Friday, December 23, 2016, at The Food Giant on East Base St. to put together Christmas Food Baskets for ten needy families in Madison County.
Each year the Madison Lions Club obtains the names of ten families from the Senior Citizens Council of Madison County, that need a Christmas meal. The Food Baskets contain a ham, frozen vegetables, apples, oranges, ten pounds of potatoes, pies and other goodies to make a great Christmas meal. Each family also received a $30.00 gift card for The Food Giant.
Members of the Lions Club separated into five groups and delivered two food baskets each from Lee to Greenville. Recipients expressed great appreciation for the food and for those who had delivered it.
The Food Giant was gracious enough to sharply discount all the food items purchased helping to stretch the budget for the baskets allowing families to have even more to enjoy this Christmas Season.
