Each year, the Columbia Lions deliver more than 600 Christmas food baskets to families and individuals in the Columbia, Marrietta and Wrightsville areas. The project is spearheaded by Lion Ken Kramer (right). Hundreds of volunteers, including high school students and local firefighters, assist with the packaging and delivery of the baskets.
