Lions Help Students Reach Their Goals with School Supplies

For generations, our clubs have served as an educational partner for students. Many children begin their education with a preschool vision screening performed by a Lion. Other students continue their schooling with a scholarship from a Lions club. Having the tools to succeed makes learning fun, which is why the Kamloops Paddlewheelers Lions Club in British Columbia equips kids with basic school supplies.

Since 2005, the club has provided backpacks and other necessities for students in the area. This year, more than 300 students started the school year stocked with supplies from Lions. The club distributes the items at a barbecue each fall, giving the students and their families a fun-filled afternoon complete with hot dogs, ice cream and snacks.

In this video, you’ll see Lions passing out school supplies at the club’s annual barbecue lunch.
