A huge thank you to the Sackville Lions Club for all of their great work in our community in 2015 and into 2016.

The Lions Club has been a huge supporter of Beacon House Food Bank for years, helping us  with our ground beef costs. In the past 5 years they have donated over $65,000 to assist Beacon House in providing  this much needed item. For 2016, Sackville Lions have increased their contribution  to an annual amount of $16,000 up from $12,000  annually to cover the increasing costs.

This past December the Sackville Lions Club sponsored “The BIG  Hungry Bus” project. This bus became a very recognized vehicle in the Sackville area and was manned by the dedicated Lions who braved the  cold weather and worked tirelessly to ensure that many of our neighbors in need would have food on their tables during the Christmas season.

This was truly a community  event where neighbors were helping neighbors.

The bus was painted by Auction Direct, Public service Announcements were provided by CIEO-FM  97.5 who also allowed the bus to be parked in their lot.

The Hungry Bus was a huge assistance  to Beacon House  to help  all of our  families  not only during Christmas but into the weeks after.

At Beacon House we are very appreciative of the Sackville lions Club, it is their caring and actions that help to make this community a better place each and every day.

Many thanks for your support.
