Grateful recipient of charitable grants from United Fund of Globe-Miami to support our All Children Eat (ACE) Program, assist with providing vision services, and sponsoring campers to Lions Camp Tatiyee (only certified Arizona special needs camp.)

Globe Lions Club received a congratulatory recognition plaque from Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) for exceeding by 200% their members' pledges in the worldwide campaign fundraiser for LCIF.  The foundation is the charity arm of Lions International to provide grants to Lions districts to assist with projects too large for one club to accomplish and includes grants for disaster relief, youth,  humanitarian, childhood cancer, hunger, envirionment, vision, and diabetes projects.  100% of donated funds go toward the project, not administrative costs. The fundraiser campaign ran for five years.  

Project ACE (All Children Eat) is a Globe Lions club project headed by Lion Christa Dalmolin-East. The program is funded through grants from the United Fund of Globe-Miami and donations from other organizations. Project ACE is in all schools in Globe and Miami school districts. Kid-friendly food and personal hygiene supplies like toothbrushes and deodorant are also provided.

Project ACE provides FREE food and hygiene supplies directly to students and is confidential. Students just need to ask their school nurse or secretary for access to the pantries in their schools if there is a need. Project ACE also provided a washer and dryer to each school to help those students experiencing laundry challenges.
