LM Lions Ring Bells for the Salvation Army
The Larchmont Mamaroneck Lions continued their Holiday tradition of bell ringing for the Salvation Army. On Saturday, December 17, Lions rang bells on Mamaroneck Avenue in Mamaroneck and on Palmer Avenue in Larchmont. With thanks to our community for their donations.
The Salvation Army annually serves more than 25 million people in America, helping them overcome poverty, addiction, and economic hardships through a range of social services. The Salvation Army provides food for the hungry, emergency relief for disaster survivors, rehabilitation for those suffering from drug and alcohol addiction, and clothing and shelter for people in need.
The Larchmont Mamaroneck Lions, who will be celebrating their Centennial in 2023, focus on supporting existing non-profit and community service groups by bringing community service leaders together to determine needs, solutions and resources. The LM Lions are part of Lions Clubs International, the world’s largest service organization of nearly 1.5 million members. The Lions signature cause is Vision/Blindness, along with Hunger, the Environment, Diabetes, Childhood Cancer and the future of Youth. They are signatories of the United Nations resolutions on women’s and refugee rights and are currently active in Afghanistan & Ukrainian refugee resettlement. In addition, housing is a local Lions priority.
