Every Thanksgiving Season, the Garden Ridge (GR) Lions provide Thanksgiving meal donations to less fortunate families in the Garden Ridge and surrounding area.
In November, the Garden Ridge Lion Club volunteers, deliver complete Thanksgiving dinners to 40 deserving families in the local area. Working through local elementary school nurses and local churches we accumulated the names of the families, their addresses, phone numbers, number of children and other information to develop maps and routes to deliver the food. A partial listing of food provided in two large boxes per family included: Yams, cut green beans, corn, cornbread mix, pies, cranberry sauce, stuffing mix, a 5-pound bag of apples and also potatoes, gravy , bread, dinner rolls, tortillas, and a Turkey, plus much more.
A message from Lion President Bill Swint - Garden Ridge Lions Club:
Thank you Garden Ridge Lions for all your efforts with the food distribution this past weekend. And a special thanks to you Mandy for coordinating the entire project. I know we made Thanksgiving a special time for these families and we should all be very proud of the effort. We all have much to be thankful for.
We Serve ... ROAR
