STRATTON-EUSTIS — Again this year, the Stratton-Eustis Lions were out and about at Polar Blast to raise cash and food for the local food pantry by inviting folks to “Stuff the Bus.”

In cooperation with the Stratton School, a school bus was parked between Fotter’s Market and The Plaza. People were invited to bring food items to place in the bus to “stuff it” and cash donations were accepted as well.

“It was a very successful effort, and we thank all those who helped us make this contribution to the food pantry,” Lion Sally Iverson said.

The Lions also held a very successful raffle for a cord of hard wood, cut, split and delivered. The raffle was to support placing skilled assistance dogs with Wounded Veterans through Lions Project for Canine Companions for Independence. Over $1,100 was raised. “We thank Ed Hobbs for working so hard to supply this wood and for his generosity towards this project,” Iverson said.

She also offered a big thank-you on behalf of the Lions for all those who contributed to the club’s fundraising this past weekend. “Your support will make a difference in the lives of others,” Iverson noted.
