FRY’S COMMUNITY REWARDS PROGRAM

No cost to you and a big benefit to the community of Peoria. 

www.FrysCommunityRewards.com

If you shop at Fry's Markets in Arizona, you can participate in the Frys Community Rewards Program by selecting on their website the Peoria Sunset Lion Club Foundation and linking the Club with your Rewards Card as a recipient of the funds they donate based on your purchases.

You help our community by just shopping at Frys and we thank you for helping Peoria Sunset Lions assist with the children and adult vision needs and our other local projects. 

Friends of the Peoria Library

We have many activities coming up in support of the Peoria Libraries.

Peoria Elementary

4TH Friday Weekend Food Packs

We bag and deliver to Peoria Elementary, 80 food packs for the 4th Friday weekend to help those children who do not have food to eat over the weekend. 

It has been relayed to the Club that a lot of these food packs are the only food many children have on the weekend.  Our weekend food packs are packed and compact to fit in a students backpack and contains items for two breakfast, two lunch, two dinner, two drinks, four snacks that are distributed by the school nurse.  

Our Club is proud to be a part in this small way knowing their is a little food to eat and not have to go hungry the entire weekend until Monday's school breakfast.  

If you would like to help with this project, we will welcome your tax deductible donations to our Foundation.  $10 will cover almost three food packs so every dollar donated helps tremendously.‚Äč
