The Vadnais Heights Lions wish to thank the many businesses, organizations, and individuals for donating non-perishable food, toys/gifts and monetary gifts to the Vadnais Heights Lions Club Foundation to provide for the annual Toy/Food Drive to help less fortunate Vadnais Heights families. The distribution was held on Saturday, December 15 with over 3,000 lbs. of food, well over 1,200 toys/gifts and approximately $10,000 being contributed during the months leading up to the distribution. Over 120 families, including more than 200 children and grandchildren between infant and 16 were served with multiple gifts, and approximately 50 lbs. of food per person. The leftover toys will support our upcoming Easter egg hunt and a local school carnival. The excess food and dollars will help provide for the monthly food distributions or emergency food to less fortunate families. The Vadnais Heights Lions members and community volunteers put in well over 250 volunteer hours to make this program successful.
The Vadnais Heights Lions thank you for your support of this very important endeavor.
