I continue to be impressed by the projects Lions are implementing in their communities, made possible through LCIF. As you read this month’s newsletter highlighting ways Lions and LCIF are helping alleviate hunger worldwide through our service together, I hope you are inspired to continue supporting LCIF both financially and as an ambassador for our foundation. As we work together to achieve MISSION1.5, and invite new members into our awesome organization, your stories of service empowered by our global foundation can inspire potential members to join us in our work to improve health and well-being, strengthen communities and support those in need across the globe.
Special thanks to everyone who participated in the 2023 Melvin Jones Photo Contest for sharing your photo and reasons for supporting the mission of LCIF. Congratulations to the winners, featured on the Melvin Jones Photo Contest page. I encourage everyone to visit LCIF: Stories of Pride to share your grant-funded projects with your fellow Lions and to read about humanitarian projects around the world.
Make a great day,
Brian E. Sheehan Chairperson, Lions Clubs International Foundation
Easing Food Insecurity in Canada
Read how Lions from nine clubs in Canada, empowered by an LCIF Hunger Grant, partnered with the Riversyde 83 Community Food Hub to develop a new food-focused community center to help people in need.
Nearly 1 billion people worldwide experience food insecurity. Through the LCIF Hunger Grant, Lions can support school-based feeding programs, food banks, feeding centers and similar facilities that provide food to people when they need it most.
