Lions In Action for Half a Century!!!

      Celebrating 50 years, the Killingworth Lions are devoted to making a positive difference in the community and globally.  This club is comprised of fifty caring volunteers led by 2021-2022 President Hilary Kumnick. Contact Hilary at for more information. Lions are determined to fight hunger and help those who are struggling due to health, personal or family hardships.Our signature fundraisers donate back every dollar and item collected.  Members empower each other in ways no one person could do alone. The mission is to reach and serve the greater population and quickly respond to individuals who need their help on a moment’s notice.

     During the COVID-19 Pandemic your Killingworth Lions have been collecting food and monetary donations at the transfer station for the Helping Hands Food Pantry and the HK Backpack Program using all safety precautions.  Close to 70 bags of food were picked up from ShopRite in Clinton by Lions members (Many thanks to Amy Leahy of ShopRite for putting together these special bags of non-perishables) and delivered them throughout the town.  A thank you must also go out to Mercedes Riccuiti, Killingworth’s Municipal Agent and Helping Hands Pantry Chairperson, and to Amber Stamm the guiding light for the HK Backpack program. Many thanks to the group of Lions who volunteered countless hours of time planning and fulfilling the immediate needs of the town’s food pantry and the HK Backpack program.

      The Lions would like to extend their gratitude to all those who have contributed to important and vital causes during this challenging time that our community and the world is facing. If you would like to continue donating grocery store gift cards or checks, please make them out to Killingworth Lions Charities, Inc. and mail them to Killingworth Lions, PO Box 680, Killingworth, CT 06419 or to make an online monetary contribution, click the DONATE button below.

     Wishing you good health and peace of mind during these difficult times.
