Calais Lions Club Taking Names and Donations for Santa's Helper Program

 

Submitted by the Calais Lions Club

 

It's that time of year again, and the Lions Club is gearing up to hand out help to those in need. The applications are in the Calais Advertiser, and will be there for the next two weeks. Applications must be filled out and sent in by December 14th to receive help. Applications will not be accepted via Facebook, word of mouth, call or text. 

We are planning to deliver on December 16-17. Somebody must be at the residence to accept vouchers. They will not be dropped off in mail boxes, under door mats or anywhere else. The Lions Club has solicited local businesses and they are selflessly giving to our area’s needy as always. Without the help of local business there would not be a Santa's Helper program. We ask that you remember this and think of them while you do your holiday shopping. We all need things in Bangor and online, but our local businesses and local people give back and serve outside of their own interest on a much greater scale. If you or your business would like to give and have not been asked, please reach out to a Lion.

We hope that everyone will remember that even during this happy time of year there are always those who are going without. We encourage everyone to do what they can to help in any capacity. To you and yours, a safe and happy holiday season.
