Help needed now for basket program

 


We are again appealing to our community for help with the Thanksgiving Basket program. 

Donations are not coming in yet but the requests for help are. If you can donate any amount, it would be greatly appreciated. We do understand that times are tough but even small amounts would help if every one could send something.

Please consider a small donation today. Checks may be sent to the Kachemak Bay Lions at P.O. Box 1824 Homer, AK  99603. Basket packing day is Nov. 17 this year which is very early so we don’t have a lot of extra days. If you want to help with the packing, please be at the Methodist Church at 9 a.m. on that day.

 Applications are at First National Bank this year as well as at the Homer Community Food Pantry. We appreciate all that you do for our community. Thank you.

Fran Van Sandt and Amy Schumaker, co-chairmen

 for the Kachemak Bay Lions
