Support of good causes has always been uppermost in the Chester Lions Club’s effort to help those in need.
One of the most endearing relationships is that between the Chester Lions Club and Covenant House.
Before she passed away, the then president of Covenant House, Sister Mary Rose, visited our club and participated in the camaraderie that exists at our dinner meetings. The Chester Lions Club donated $50,000 towards establishment of their Newark facility. The Club has given generously through the years trying to make a life-changing, life-saving difference to the many youngsters caught in a downward spiral of abuse and abandonment.
This year $1,000 has been donated to Covenant House to perhaps provide hope and dignity to kids in need.
