Nevada City, February 17, 2021 – Nevada City Lions Club will be participating in the California Lions Project Care: Hunger, a statewide Lions Clubs Service project to be conducted during the month of February 2021.  The Club will be collecting non-perishable food items for distribution to Interfaith Food Ministry, 440 Henderson Street, Grass Valley, California.

The purpose of the California Lions Project Care: Hunger is to engage all California Lions Clubs of all sizes in a statewide community service program that is of such vital importance during this COVID-19 pandemic.

Nevada City Lions Club will be collecting non-perishable food items on February 28, 2021 in front of the main entrance of SPD Market, Nevada City from 9 am until 3 pm.   All state and local COVID-19 health measures will be followed while the food collection is occurring.

Nevada City Lions President Jackie Wapp said she is excited about participating in this statewide project.  “The goal of the California Lions Project Care: Hunger is to collect 150,000 pounds of non-perishable food items throughout the state and we look forward to the Nevada City Lions Club making a significant contribution to achieving this goal.  It is an opportunity for our local Lions Club members to engage in a meaningful project that will greatly benefit our community during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
