ASHTON - The Ashton Lions Club is once again sponsoring the Ashton Lions Children’s Fund Christmas Drive to help those children in the Ashton and Franklin Grove areawho are in need during the Christmas holiday season.
On Sunday, Dec. 2, we are taking approximately 30 children from the Ashton and Franklin Grove area to Wal-Mart for an exciting shopping trip. We spend approximately $100 per child at the store plus we give them a small toy when we return to Ashton. The shopping trip is for clothing, boots, shoes and other necessary items that the children need.
If anyone is interested in making a donation toward this very rewarding cause, please make your check payable to The Ashton Lions Club and include our charitable organization ID #01057779 on your check. Please mail your check to Lion Lori Hillison, 2011 Prairie Road, Ashton, IL, 61006. A donation of any amount will be greatly appreciated.
