The Fairfax Lions Clubs, along with several other local clubs and the Lions of Virginia Foundation (LOVF), raised $19,525 to support Food for Others’ mobile food program for people impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, according to Food for Others and the Fairfax Lions Club.
“LOVF matched donations of individual Lions clubs,” the press release said.
The contributing clubs included:
- Fairfax Lions
- Falls Church-Annandale Lions
- Burke Lions
- Springfield Global Lions
- Clifton Lions
- Alexandria Asian-American Lions
“It is deeply gratifying how the various Fairfax area Lions Clubs quickly teamed together and partnered with LOVF to contribute this money to put help put food on the table and provide some comfort to our neighbors in need in these hard times,” Mike Rumberg, the president of the Fairfax Lions Club, said.
Food for Others’ mobile food program delivers emergency food to people who can’t get food from distribution centers, according to a press release.
People who want to support Food for Others can donate items like canned chili, canned chicken, rice, pasta sauce and canned fruit; start a vegetable or herb garden to grow produce; and spread the word about Food for Others’ efforts.
