Three Lions Clubs from Montville: Mohegan Pequots, Asian and Americans together with the Montville Lions added 1542 pounds of food products to the Social Services Food Pantry of Montville just in time for Thanksgiving. Lion Ken Tucker established a joint effort with the three Lions Clubs of Montville to replenish the food used to aid those affected by Storm Sandy. Lion Governor Jan Miller ran with the idea, obtaining a $2500 grant from Lions Club International Foundation (LCIF).
Food products were purchased at Tri-Town Foods and an impressive gathering of Lions and family members participated in delivering the food to the pantry.
How long will the food last? “Only two weeks,” states Lion Ken.
