Sierra Vista Lions Club: We Serve!

JUN 2024

Make a Blanket Morning.  

The Sierra Vista Lions Club partnered with the Salvation Army and Project Linus to hold a ‘Make-A-Blanket’ Morning.  We had 30 adults and 4 children volunteers from our community who created 30 no-sew fleece blankets during the event and also created custom quilt blocks by coloring in pre-printed fabric templates.  The completed quilt squares will be assembled into 4 beautiful one-of-a-kind quilts at a later date.  We also had wonderful people stop by and donate 20 afghans and blankets for Project Linus.

Project Linus blankets are delivered to children who are traumatized, seriously ill, in hospitals, shelters, or social service agencies, and who need a sense of security, comfort, warmth, and love.

Our ‘Make a Blanket’ Mornings are open to anyone who'd like to help make the blankets.  We provide complimentary light refreshments available while they last.

Aluminum Can Recycling. The Sierra Vista Lions Club collected aluminum cans and donated them to the local Nancy J. Brua Animal Care Shelter.  The shelter staff collects the aluminum cans to raise funding for sick and injured stray animals and other general shelter needs.

Collect Donated Eyeglasses.  Volunteers collect used/donated eyeglasses, sunglasses, and reading glasses from collection boxes located at multiple sites. The glasses will undergo further processing - usable ones for redistribution to less fortunate individuals in developing countries; unusable ones are recycled.
