Did you know that in the Sumner School District (which includes Bonney Lake ) there are literally thousands of children who qualify for free or reduced lunch programs and whose families are too poor to afford luxuries like school clothes and supplies?
Lions4Kids is a necessities resource specifically for school-age kids from 3to18. As a convenience to families we have a limited supply of basic infant and toddler wear for siblings. That we are aware of, we are the only facility of its kind in the Pierce County area.
The goal of Lions4Kids is very simple: to provide every child who needs it with clothing, school supplies and personal care items so they are clean, groomed and outfitted like their peers so they are less likely to be targets of derision and ridicule.
Studies overwhelmingly show that children who don't feel they fit in with their peers are more likely to do poorly in school, drop out altogether or get into mischief or in trouble with the law. We hope that by boosting their self esteem and dignity they'll graduate from high school, go on to further education and ultimately obtain meaningful, sustaining employment so they can be tax payers, not social services users.
We can't control what goes on outside our doors, and the kids don't have a say either. Our role is just a small piece of support for the kids, but an important one. And thanks to each of you it's making a difference!!
