Blurry picture, but a crystal-clear purpose: FEED THE PEOPLE.
Since 1979 the Lions club I belong to has conducted a Thanksgiving Food Drive. It’s the most basic of efforts to fulfill our Lion Motto:
It started with ten people receiving the generous donations for others so that those ten folks could have a proper Thanksgiving meal. Near forty years later, the food drive collects the fixings for a Thanksgiving dinner — including a whole turkey — plus other food staples, for 160 or so families. Call it 600+ people, more or less.
There are a lot of mechanics to the operation, many people doing many key tasks, planning and coordination, and three long days to make the food drive a success. In the end, we feed the people, and that’s what it’s all about.
