WestShore Lions Club seeks donations for school safety buckets

The WestShore Lions Club has been working since last fall to secure donations for its School Safety Buckets program. These five-gallon plastic buckets, filled with items to be used in an emergency, under the supervision of a teacher – will be distributed to every classroom in the cities of Westlake and North Olmsted.

Items are still needed to complete the 570 buckets:

  • 16-ounce claw hammers – need 570 hammers
  • Toilet paper – need 372 rolls
  • Paper towels – need 468 rolls
  • Ace bandage wraps – need 440 wraps
  • Fleece blankets – need 570 blankets
  • 16-ounce bottles of drinking water – need 402 bottles
  • Large garbage bags – need 570 bags

If you can donate, or know of any organization that might want to become a sponsor involved with this Safety School Bucket project, please contact the WestShore Lions Club at 440-250-5564, or email LionsofWestshore@gmail.com. The Club can make arrangements to pick up items at your convenience.

Note: A Major Sponsor is one that donates the needed number of items that would complete the donation category for a specific item of need, in the amount of 570. In appreciation for the major donation, the company's name and logo will be displayed on the canvas that will cover all the buckets.

The WestShore Lions Club is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, please consider donating. Co-chairs for the WestShore Lions Club Safety Bucket Campaign are Lions Nan Baker and Denise Ayers.
