Lions deliver hot meals to 25 families on Xmas DayPOSTED: 12/29/15 5:37 PM
GREAT BAY – The St. Maarten Lions Club delivered food and drinks to 25 underprivileged families in just over a two hour period on Christmas Day. As part of the 2014-2015 year program, the club delivered a hot meal which was catered by Bree’s Kitchen to 77 citizens in various districts.
The Lions Club members were divided in three teams that went by taxi to Cole Bay, Cay Hill, St. Peters, Simpson Bay, Dutch Quarter, Middle Region, Nazareth and Upper Princess Quarter. Each team spent a few minutes with the families, sang a Christmas song and a Lion prayed for the family. All families receiving the hot meals were very appreciative of the visit of members of the St. Maarten Lions Club.
“One of the key results from the visits to the various homes is that the St. Maarten Lions Club will do more research into the urgent needs of some the families they visited on Christmas Day and determine where the Lions Club can assist them in the near future,” said Lion Alison Busby the Committee Chairman in charge of the Christmas Day Family Feeding project.
