Wreaths Across America

As a follow on to the National Wreaths Across America Day (12/17) where the Camas supported the wreath-laying ceremonies at the Camas Cemetery last month, January brought the task of collecting up all the wreaths for recycling. The Camas Lions showed up in force to assist the Local VFW with gathering all the wreaths and ensuring all the grave markers were returned to their pre-holiday condition.

New Giving Partnership

The Camas Lions recently added another partner to its continuing mission to serve the community, namely the Camas-Washougal Community Chest (CWCC). The CWCC is the largest philanthropic organization in the greater Camas area, supported solely by local donations, with more than 95% of those donations being distributed as grants to local non-profit organizations which offer qualifying services. Those services must advance one or more of the following purposes: education, youth activities, aid to people with special needs, natural resource conservation, health and welfare programs, crisis and emergency services, and other similar charitable or civic objectives. Through CWCC, the Camas Lions Foundation donated $5,000 to fulfill a grant request from the Meals on Wheels People to expand the Medically Tailored Meals program to its clients due to medically tailored meals costing more to produce because they include higher quality meals, more diversity and variety of choices, and an increased quantity of food per meal. In the coming calendar year, the Camas Lions Club hopes to build on all its new partnerships to serve the community better.
