Lions Club Spam & Egg Drive

On Saturday,  April 6th the Vernonia Lions Club held its 2nd Annual Spam & Egg Drive at the Vernonia Sentry Market to help the Vernonia Cares Food Bank.

Vernonia Cares traditionally receives most of its donations in November and December. Working together, the Lions Club is trying to promote giving throughout the year. The Lions Club makes cash donations as needed, but are working to get the “giving” message out to the rest of the community.

The Vernonia Cares Food Bank is in need of canned protein items, including tuna, ham, and SPAM. Several of the Lions Club members love Spam and have collected labels and memorabilia. It’s been a great fit. With cash donations received,  the Food Bank purchases eggs from Sentry Market.

Next year the Lions are  planning a Spam cooking demonstration.

Thanks to Vernonia for all your support.
