Kelowna Lions support local kids

The Lions Clubs International and YMCA’s share a core belief—to serve their community

The Kelowna-Rutland Lions Club visited the Kelowna Family YMCA earlier this week with a big cheque that will go towards local children and youth in need.

The $1,000 gift to the YMCA will make it possible for more underprivileged children, youth and families from our community to access Y child care and other programs that will support their health, development and positively impact their lives, said the Lions Club.

“The Lions Clubs International and YMCA’s share a core belief—to serve their community. One of the Lions key missions is to support children through scholarships, recreation and mentoring,” stated a press release.
