Dublin Lions Club makes donation for Snowville Backpack Buddies

COMM - Dublin Lions Club donationThe Dublin Lions Club recently made a $1,000 donation to the Snowville Backpack Buddies program.

The backpack program began six years ago, filling a void at Snowville Elementary School. The Snowville Backpack Buddies is one of the area’s major initiatives to ensure that children in need have balanced, nutritious food they need to learn and grow. The concept is that children who are at risk of weekend hunger receive a bookbag of food that is child-friendly, nutritious, nonperishable and easy to prepare. Each backpack offers enough food that the children can assemble into at least six healthy meals over the weekend when the school is unavailable to provide meals.

The Snowville Backpack Buddies partner with the local communities and Snowville Elementary School to make this program possible. The backpacks are assembled by volunteers and distributed to the children in need very discreetly by the school system each Friday afternoon.

Those who would like to make a positive impact on the community should consider joining the Dublin Lions Club, says Danielle Vann of Tuck Chiropractic Clinic.

“Our motto is ‘We Serve.’ The Dublin Lions are part of a global service network, doing whatever is necessary to help our communities, such as the Snowville Backpack Buddies,” Vann says.
