The motto of Lions Clubs International is “We Serve.” The members of the Beaufort Lions Club have found another way to serve the Beaufort Community by partnering with HELP of Beaufort during the month of September.
Food banks have a large quantity of donations during the holidays. However, during the rest of the year, food donations are often sparse. The Beaufort Lions Club is asking that canned and fresh food donations be dropped off at HELP of Beaufort, 1810 Ribaut Road, Port Royal, S.C. 29935, Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Please mention the Lions’ campaign when dropping off the donation.
Requested items include small jars of peanut butter, small packages of breakfast cereal, a variety of canned fruits and vegetables (small packaging), canned meats such as Spam, Vienna Sausages, or canned fish, small cans of chili, small cans of Chef Boyardee pasta, personal hygiene products such as single packages of toothbrushes and toothpaste, shaving cream, deodorant, and feminine products, as well as small containers of fresh milk, fruit, and vegetables.
The Lions ask that neighbors help strengthen the Beaufort community by assisting HELP of Beaufort, our local food bank, in providing children returning home from school with healthy snacks and meals
