1. Support to Chautauqua Park’s efforts to Recycling Program or to KCCB’s Recycling efforts in the
Crystal Springs Area.
2. Reading Action Program Campaign (RAP)
Each Lions Club is challenged to get involved in addressing literacy in their community. Here in our community, the most vulnerable of all our children are those being reared in low-income homes, as most do not have any books to read, even if they have a desire to read. This is the basis for our recommendation that we adopt a children’s book donation program. We will work with the elementary school to identify 12 to 14 children who could benefit from this program. Each Lion will be responsible for bringing two children’s books once a quarter. These books will be given to the children to keep. They will own the books, keep them at home for their personal use. The committee will be responsible for working with the school to identify the children; consulting with the Library to identify the types of books most needed & possibly buying used library books; establishing a way to get the books to the children; maintain a check list of Lions who have met their book donations: Maintaining a list of book titles that have been donated to avoid duplication to a child.
