Club Projects

Leo Club has helped out the community in various ways and some of the services done are listed below to give an idea of what Leo Club embodies.

  • Annual Blanket & Jacket Drive

Members collect jackets, coats, mittens, scarves, and any other warm pieces of clothing to donate to the families in need of them for the cold winter.

  • Bake Sale  

Several bake sales were done for different fundraisers like the Heart Association and for Nancy Kyllingstad in need of a medical procedure.

  • Lions Club Pancake Breakfast

Members help out with the event by selling raffle tickets, collecting them, and anything else needed at the time.

  • Lion’s Club Polenta Feed

Members participated in helping pass out food.

  • Plant Trees in Finley Park

To help the environment, members planted trees at the Finley Community Park.

  • Christmas: Unpacking Boxes for Dinners

During winter break, members helped unpack boxes of apples that would be used to hold dinners that would be served to the people in need of it for Christmas.

  • Helping with Presents

Spanish speaking members of Leo Club helped the Spanish speaking parents find presents at a place giving away free gifts for families that could not afford them.

  • Boys & Girls Club

Members tried out healthy snacks that would be sold at the Boys & Girls Club.

  • Park Cleanup

Members choose a park and get together to pick up garbage there, helping the environment and improving the appearance of the park at the same time(see our photo gallery for a picture of club members at this event!).

  • Food Bank

The food bank is responsible for helping those in need in our county and members volunteer by sorting and bagging produce in the main warehouse. Occasionally, there may be other projects such as pre-packing boxes of food, relabeling cans of food, or bagging other bulk food items.

  • Heifer Project

Leo club began a fundraiser for Heifer International's which help communities to end world hunger and poverty and to care for the Earth by donating animals (cows, chickens, goats, etc) to people in third world countries. Heifer links communities and helps bring sustainable agriculture and commerce to areas with a long history of poverty. The animals provide partners with both food and reliable income, as agricultural products such as milk, eggs, and honey can be traded or sold at market. With the money Leo Club raised we were able to buy a water buffalo, a goat, a flock of chickens, and honeybees.

  • Sock Drive

The Leos collected socks which were donated to a village in Kenya for those who needed to keep warm in the cold weather.


These are just a few of the projects we have done. In the future we will repeat some of these projects as well as plan new service projects.
