During the upcoming Holiday season, the Concord Lion Club is joining with the family of King Lion Dan Reilly to present a special event to remember and help those less fortunate in our surrounding communities. We are collecting toys for the United States Marine Corps Toys for Tots program; the toys will be distributed to underprivileged children in the Boston area.
On Sunday, November 15th, from 2:00 – 5:00 pm, the Reilly Family will host their 3rd annual wine and cheese social. Children’s entertainment will include a magic show, crafts, and games. Last year’s attendees donated over 350 toys and more than $5000. This year’s goal is 375 toys. An anonymous donor has committed a $2000 contribution to Lions charities if the goal is reached.
We hope all of our neighbors will stop by to say “hi”, drop off some new, unwrapped gifts that are appropriate for a boy or girl, ages 0-12, and support this great cause. If you cannot attend that event, you can still contribute by contacting King Lion Dan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
