LIONS CLUBS INTERNATIONAL
OUR FOOD 4 KIDS BACKPACK PROGRAM - Please help us.
November 12, 2015
Dear Fellow Lions, Friends and Supporters:
San Diego TFC Lions Club of District 4-L6 (San Diego & Imperial Counties in California) just started a huge and very meaningful project with San Diego Food Bank in supporting the FOOD 4 KINDS BACKPACK PROGRAM at Kimball Elementary School in National City, California. Each Backpack contains enough food to see the students through the weekend. These kids belong to families considered to be Food Insecure, chronically hungry elementary school students from low-income households, who are at risk of going hungry over the weekend when free school meals are unavailable.
It is such an enormous responsibility and we would like to solicit your help supporting this project. Please visit http://www.fooddriveonline.org/sandiegofoodbank/LionsTFC and purchase/donate any food or amount of money to help the students at Kimball Elementary School. Or if you may just want to send us a check, please make it payable to "San Diego Food Bank" and add to the memo "SD TFC Backpack" and send it to San Diego TFC Lions Club, 1341 East 8th Street, Suite A, National City, CA 91950. San Diego Food Bank is a 501-C3 organization and their Tax ID # is 20-4374795.
We thank you very much for your assistance.
San Diego TFC Lions Club
San Diego TFC (The Filipino Company) Lions Club was chartered July 7, 2009 - The newest Lions Club in District 4-L6 this Lion Year (2009 - 2010) under the leadership of District Governor Julie Crawford.
When chartered, San Diego TFC is one of the 60 Lions Clubs in District 4-L6. Our members come from many different professions - from MD's to RN's & JD's, MBA's to Engineers, Accountants to Bank Managers, from Real Estate to Retired Military personnel (Chief Petty Officers to Colonel) and from Carpenters to Electricians.
"TFC", The Filipino Channel, is a moniker for the ABS-CBN Global TV Network from the Philippines that intended to connect Filipinos, living and/or working overseas, to their country of origin. Ear catching and very popular, it was adopted by the club, but instead, to mean "The Filipino Company". It aimed to invite those who have affiliations, attachments and connections to the Filipinos to join the club; and aside from fellowship, partnership and networking, serve their local communities and also serve across the seas.
The club logo depicts a "jeepney", a form of public transportation that is prominent and popular in the Philippines. It is inside a round frame to signify the club's unending commitment to Lionism and dedication to service. The text colors represent the same colors (red, green and blue) of the TFC ABS-CBN Global network, the inspiration for the club's distinguishing name.
