Appalachia Service Project (ASP)
Saturday June 23 thru Saturday June 29, 2013
Community United Methodist Church, Virginia Beach, VA
ASP Avery County, NC
Members of the Kempsville Lions Club gathered from Saturday June 23rd thru Saturday June 29th, 2013 to participate in the Appalachia Service Project (ASP) Missions trip. They volunteered to work in Avery County, NC. assisting low income families that needed repairs to their houses.
Appalachia Service Project (ASP) provides one of the most rewarding structured service opportunities in the nation -- bringing thousands of volunteers from around the country to rural Central Appalachia to repair homes for low-income families.
But ASP is more than just a home repair program. Yes, Appalachia's poorest families urgently need your help, but they can help change your life, too. Because when you change the lives of others, they have a way of changing you.
Lion Lewis Falls hangs out with some of the team.
After a few days of hard work repairing homes with ASP, your hands will grow a little tougher, your arms a little stronger, and your relationship with God a whole lot deeper. You'll return home to your community with a passion for service, a renewed compassion for other people, and a fresh appreciation for your place and purpose in this world.
Best of all, you'll discover first-hand that regardless of geography, education, or economic class, we are all equal members of the family of God. We like to say that our goal is to make homes warmer, safer and drier for needy families. And for more than 40 years, we've done exactly that for thousands of families.
Lion President Paul Steele and his "Purple" team.
Yet for all that, we are only able to serve one in ten families who apply to us for help. We need many, many more volunteers to make a lasting dent in Appalachian poverty. In other words, we need you. So come on and join us. Sure, you'll install insulation. Repair porches. Reinforce foundations. But even more importantly, you'll build a whole new you.

Stop Hunger Now
Saturday - March 2, 2013
St. Andrew's United Methodist Church
Virginia Beach, VA
Members of the Kempsville Lions Club gathered on March 3, 2013 at St. Andrew's United Methodist Church, located in Virginia Beach, to partake in a Stop Hunger Now event to help package over 40,000 meals for the hungry. Stop Hunger Now is a world-wide distributor of meals to those in need. Saturday's meals were going to areas in Ethiopia, Vietnam, Yugoslavia and China.
The meals are highly nutritious, dehydrated meals comprised of rice, soy, vegetables, flavoring and 21 essential vitamins and minerals. Each package provides a reasonable serving for six and costs approximately 25 cents to make. The meals are easy to transport, store and distribute to those in greatest need. The meal packaging program predominantly provides meals to support school feeding programs in schools and orphanages around the world. This is a pivotal step because children in impoverished areas are often sent to school if they will be fed. The education they receive is the turning point at which many negative factors such as infant mortality, disease and gender equality are impacted and communities can begin to heal themselves..
More than 1 billion people do not have enough to eat. In developing countries, 10.9 million children under age five die each year. In fact, a child dies every six seconds from a hunger-related cause.
The meals are packaged by volunteers – like us. Through a fun and engaging assembly line process, a team of 40 volunteers can package 10,000 meals in just two hours.
This brings the Kempsville Lions Club total up to over 90,000 meals packaged at various Stop Hunger Now events.
3rd Annual Frosty 5K Run Saturday - January 12, 2013 SportsPlex Virginia Beach, VA
The Kempsville Lions Club held its 3rd Annual Frosty 5K Run on January 12, 2013 at our NEW venue - The SportsPlex in Virginia Beach. The weather had been cold, but for this one day the weather was unseasonably warm with mist lingering in the air.
We opened the Frosty 5K at our new venue - the SportsPlex in Virginia Beach. We were psyched about the new location. The other runs we held were at Mt. Trashmore in Virginia Beach, and were freezing with a strong wind. When runner's were polled after the race, they loved the new location and the race.
For more information about the race, race results and links to photos see our Frosty 5K page.
Overall the event was a huge success. We look forward to seeing you all for our 2014 Run. Thanks to ALL for supporting our 3rd Annual Frosty 5K Run and making it a success.
