Each year we look for gaps in services in our local community. In 2016 we added hygiene as part of our offering. We have been assisting the road warriors in our area for years with hygiene products, but we had not taken that leap of faith to provide for other individuals and families. We started small with just a few hygiene items, a hygiene drive and then we partnered with Irving Bible Church.
They set up a tree with ornaments requesting things for the clients we serve. We chose full size shampoo as a need due to the many requests. How clever then for one of their team members to think of using trial size shampoo as the ornament with the need for full size shampoo on the reverse side.
We love our brothers and sisters who have the gift of creativeness and use it to help advance the Kingdom of God. We pray you will find favor with the Lord our God in the New Year.
Lions can often be scary and ferocious. They are powerful and with one swipe of their claw can take down even a fierce opponent. However, there is a different type of Lion. One that is caring and involved, seeking to help and improve quality of life. Of course we are speaking of Lions International.
Lions International is the world’s largest service club organization. Their members are ready to help in communities in various ways. Many who have heard of Lions Club are familiar with some of their work with vision, diabetes, environment and cancer but did not know they help with hunger?
As part of the Irving Noon Day Lions Club hunger outreach they support organizations like BBMOI Crisis Ministries. We at BBMOI Crisis Ministries have been a recipient over the years of donations from their club as well as individual members. This assistance allows us to provide groceries to families who are struggling.
Thank you Irving Noon Day Lions Club. We love and appreciate all you do for our community.
