The Mount Si Lions and Mount Si Leo Clubs have been collecting items needed by local youth at risk.

The clubs gathered toiletries, basic food items, socks, underwear, backpacks and snacks to donate to Friends of Youth in Snoqualmie and Kirkland as well as YouthCare in the University District in Seattle.

This volunteer activity occurred at the club’s July meeting, hosted by Chris Butler in Fall City.

Their project helps to serve at risk foster and homeless youth and fulfills the Lions motto:  “We Serve.”

According to Anne Smarsh, newly installed Lions club president, items recently donated by club members and their friends will allow the Lions to meet the pressing needs of at-risk youth in the Snoqualmie Valley community and beyond. Mount Si Lions and Leo members thank everyone who  contributed to this cause.

The Mount Si Lions Club has 14 members and meets on the second and fourth  Tuesday of the month at Boxley’s in North Bend.

To get involved, contact Kevin Fisher at (425)-749-6880, or visit www.mountsilions.com.
