The ‘Lion’share benefits food shelf in Rogers

Lions team up with Cub Scouts

In October and November, the Rogers Lions Club coordinated a food drive to benefit the CROSS Food Shelf.

CROSS is located in Rogers and serves Rogers and the surrounding areas with food and other social services.

The Lions not only gathered donations of food and money within the club but, coordinated donations from local schools (Mary Queen of Peace, Rogers Elementary School, Hassan Elementary School, Rogers Middle School, Redeeming Grace Lutheran School and Kaleidoscope Charter School) and also coordinated donations from area businesses.

The Boy Scout Troop 582 of Rogers assisted in picking up a potato donation as well as in dropping off/picking up donation barrels from businesses.

The food drive was a huge success with totals of 6,200 pounds of food and more than $700 in cash donations.
