School News: Leos Join Lions in Bahamas School Supply Drive

Dec 13, 2019

The Southern Regional Leo Club, Stafford Township Lions Club and local radio station WOBM 92.7 recently sponsored a school supply drive to help hurricane-damaged schools in the Bahamas.

The groups collaborated to collect, package and ship 11 cartons of school supplies to Lion Matt Samuel of the Ft. Pierce Lions Club in Florida. Celeste Bent of the Freeport Lions Club and a schoolteacher there, had requested school supplies to help her reopen two schools due to weather disaster.

The groups collected folders, lined paper, binders, markers, pencils, crayons and other school essentials.

In another charitable effort, the local Leo and Lions clubs will provide $100 worth of pajamas to the National Pajama Program, a nonprofit organization promoting and supporting a comforting bedtime routine for children affected by instability to help them thrive.

For each pair of pajamas donated, Scholastic Book Clubs will donate a brand-new book to Pajama Program to be distributed to kids in need.
