Supporting the less fortunate
In the spirit of the season, the Westshore Lions Club will be accepting new and gently used winter coats for Coats For Kids. Please join us on Wednesday, Dec. 21, at 7 p.m. in the Dover Room at Westlake Porter Public Library, 27333 Center Ridge Road, for some holiday treats and a presentation on services for homeless youth.
Carey Gibbons, Youth Engagement Manager of the Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless, who works with gay homeless and the wider community, will discuss the array of services available to a diverse population of homeless youth in need.
If you can't bring a coat that evening, the Coats For Kids donation container will be in the lobby of Porter Library through early January.
For additional information, please call the Westshore Lions at 440-250-5564.
I am a member of the Westshore Lions Club part of Lions clubs International community service. My service area includes helping the blind, we collect the used eye glasses and recently the Lions Club finished the Safety bucket project for the N. Olmsted and Westlake Schools. We are gradually expanding our eye glasses collection locations in Westlake, North Olmsted, Rocky River and more.
