  • Got Sneakers? Fundraiser — From now to the end of January, 2022, the Vancouver Lions Club is conducting a “Sneaker Drive” fundraiser. It is simple, really. Collect and turn in lightly used sneakers to the Vancouver Lions Club, and the Club will “sell” them to a sneaker recycling organization. The used shoes will be recycled to needy persons, and the money raised by the Club will be returned to the community through the Vancouver Lions Foundation. Email sneakers@vancouverlions.org for more information and for instructions on where you can deliver your collection of lightly–used shoes.

  • Onesies Holiday Project — Everyone ought to have a onsie, right? Well, babies who are receiving chemotherapy sure ought to have them. And those two thoughts spurred a program from the District 19G (of which the Vancouver Lions Club is a part) pediatric cancer coordinator, PZC and LaCenter Lion Edie Brannon, to figure out how to alter onsies to add a flap through which a chemotherapy port can be accessed. The end result is that babies who are being treated for cancer can do so in the warmth of a onsie instead of naked but for a diaper. And the Vancouver Lions Club is all in on collecting onsies over the holidays, which will be donated to PZC Edie, then donated with the fancy port–flap installed to families whose babies need chemotherapy. All you have to do is buy one or more onsies (they need to be new) and get them to the Club. We will take it from there. Plain colors preferred. Sizes 9 and 12 months are the most requested sizes. Email onsies@vancouverlions.org for more information and for instructions on where you can deliver your collection of onsies.
