For the Centennial Project, District 1-D decided to collect household products to help the newly housed veterans from our district settle in comfortably. Many homeless veterans have been placed in housing, and as Lions, we wanted to help. Throughout the district, all Lions clubs are encouraged to collect items for the veterans.
Rockford Noon Lions Dennis Nelson was kind enough to take on the job as chairperson. He has collected numerous items for the veterans already, but more is still needed. District 1-D donated $500 to further the efforts of purchasing baskets, shampoo, conditioner, soap, pots and pans, silverware, clocks, sheets, blankets, etc.
This Centennial Project is important for Lions to show to the veterans that we serve.
