To the Editor:
The Carrollton Lions Club’s annual Coats for Cubs program was a success again, with more than 220 individuals served with coats, gloves, scarves and hats. This success is not possible without the help of a caring community.
Contributing to this years program were: Burgett Angus Farm/Keith Burgett, Rex Energy, Fred & Eileen Rohrer, Isaac Hennebert, Bob Dunlap, Berg & Birong, DDS, Dr. John Walters, Eastern Star, Augusta Presbyterian Church, Ashtons 5 & 10, Allstate Insurance, Consumers National Bank, Warner & Warner Accounting, Dr. Greg Fair, Carroll Healthcare, Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church and Carrollton Lions Club members
We are currently preparing for next year’s program. We will start a new donation program when the weather breaks this spring by seeking good, clean winter clothing items that are no longer needed by a family.
We also are seeking cash donations from community individuals and businesses for the purchase of the new items as they go on sale in the next few weeks.
To donate coats, gloves, scarves or hats, or money, call Lions Club President Tom Turnipseed at 330-627-3092.
