Eyewear and hearing aids donations

A busy December for Schaumburg-Hoffman Lions Club

Santa Express

Santa made a special trip to Elgin on Tuesday, December 15, to partner with members of the Resident Officer Program of Elgin (ROPE) and spread cheer amongst some of Elgin’s families in need. Lions Mike, Herb, Val, Tom and Vivian were there to greet children as they lined up to see Santa at various planned and unplanned spots around the city. The Elgin Police Department and Santa provided Christmas stockings filled with treats, toys and gift card.

Jingle all the way

On Saturday, December 12, Lions Sue, George, Val, Tom, Rich, Mike, JoAnne, Jazmine, Jesse, Kevin, Mary Jo, Stephanie and Vivian, from the Schaumburg-Hoffman Lions Club, partnered with The Salvation Army, and other service organizations, for an All Volunteer Day.  They rang a bell to fill the red kettle in front of the Jewel-Osco in Schaumburg.

Rick Reigner, Resource Development Director of The Salvation Army in Elgin says of the effort, “We could not do this work without the help of our friends. We are truly blessed.”

A desk indeed, when a desk is in need

Lions step in to provide desks for students from Armstrong Elementary School, who do not have sufficient workspace at home during remote learning. Lion Jack has done a fabulous job building desks fit for any scholar. (He is leaving the painting to his wife, Lion Carol.)   

  

 

Schaumburg-Hoffman Lions Club provides for those in need

When an elderly community member's hot water heater went out in mid-November, the Schaumburg Lions Clubs stepped in to help.  Working in partnership with the Township of Schaumburg's department of Senior and Disability Services, the Schaumburg-Hoffman Lions Club quickly had the water heater replaced. "Our clients were so excited to have hot water again and the ability to take hot showers," stated Becky Cordes, Director of Senior and Disability Services for the Township of Schaumburg.
