Welcome to the Darien Lions Club Foundation
HOLIDAY FOOD BASKET PROGRAM
The Darien Lions Club is planning for its
40th annual Food Basket Program this holiday season. Last year with
the support of several local businesses, organizations and schools
we were able to provide hams, turkeys, dairy products, produce and
canned food along with gifts to 200 families in Darien and nearby
communities. The Darien Park District also plays a major role
in helping us with this project.
This year in these challenging economic times our needs may be even
greater. Over the years members of our community have generously
contributed to this event. Please consider participating by making
a cash donation which will be used to purchase food supplies for
this project. The cost to sponsor a local family is $75.00 and
checks can be made payable to the Darien Lions Club Foundation; a
qualified 501C(3) organization. Our mailing address is 1702
Plainfield Road, Darien, IL 60561.
This project has grown to be one of our strongest humanitarian
projects and any and all donations are greatly appreciated. We
will begin packing operations from our Darien Park Dist. Fairview
staging headquarters on Friday starting at 5pm and delivering the food baskets and gifts
at 9:00am on Saturday, December
For additional information on providing donations please contact our
