Continuing their tradition of supporting education, the Fridley Lions Club donated Target gift cards to every elementary school classroom teacher in the Fridley school district on August 29, 2019. The purpose of the gift card donation is to help Fridley Public Schools teachers purchase classroom supplies for the school year. This year, rather than donating $100, the Lions gifted $150 to each elementary school teacher.
“We greatly appreciate what the teachers in our community do, and we want to do what we can to help,” said Lions Club President Roger Solz.
Along with Solz, Lions Club members Don Holum, Shannon Melham, Jinny Ranallo, Jeff Hood, Jim Young and Bud Dauphin were on hand to present the gift cards. Now in its 7th year, the Lions Club has donated over $37,000 to Fridley elementary school teachers.
The Fridley Lions Club's partnership with the school district supports students in many ways. The Lions also make donations to Fridley Middle School and Fridley High School athletics and activities programs, as well as sponsors the annual Scholastic Achievement Scholarship Banquet.
