Marshfield (OnFocus) – The Marshfield Lions Club supports the Marshfield community in many ways, most recently with their donation to the Marshfield United Way’s “Supplies 4 Success” school supply drive.

Lion Lily Michalski, pictured on the far left, said, “We collected over $100 from our members as well as friends and also a wash basket full of school supplies.”

In the photo, Michalski and Sue Cherney (middle) can be seen delivering the money and supplies to Ashley Winch, Executive Director of the Marshfield United Way.

In addition to donating to the United Way, the “Lions Club donates $1,000 to the public library each year and has purchased the coin twirler for people to donate their coins to the library,” according to Michalski. The coin twirler can be found at the entrance of the library.

Michalski says the club also donates to the “Personal Development Center, Hannah Center, North Wood County Historical Society, Civic Band, Little League, Project Graduation, [and] Habitat for Humanity,” to name a few. The Lions Club also sponsors the children’s fishing contest during Dairyfest and gives out three scholarships to high school seniors each May.

The Lions Club does more than give money to various organizations. Each month, the members bake cookies at the Ronald McDonald House and deliver food for Home Delivered Meals through the hospital every Saturday.

The Marshfield Lions Club currently has over twenty-five members. They are always looking for more members who want to actively serve the community. There is no restriction on who can join and they meet on the first and third Tuesday of the month at 6pm. During the summer months, they meet at the fairgrounds, but normally they meet at China Chef.

The Marshfield Area United Way’s “Supplies 4 Success” school supply drive ended on August 6th, but individuals can still donate to the organization using this link.
