Plainfield Lions program reaches 152 families

Fifty members of the Plainfield Lions Club distributed $27,450 in Jewel gift cards to 152 area families in need on Dec. 14 as part of its annual Christmas “Basket” program.

The Plainfield Lions Club is now in its 70th year of serving the local community.

Larry Wiers, event chairman, said the organization conducts fundraisers throughout the year to fuel the Christmas “Basket” program as well as other outreach efforts such as the free spaghetti dinner for seniors and providing glasses and eye care to those in need.

Fundraisers include a spring dinner/silent auction, a summer golf outing, a fall candy drive and the popular nut sale during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
