Golden and District Lions donate to help Cops for Kids

A presentation from the Golden and District Lions is going to help kids in Golden

The Golden and District Lions have once again stepped up to help out Cops for Kid.

“This is the second year they have given $200 and they have also been helping out with the barbecue and whatever we have going on. They are always a big supporter,” said Cst. Mike Hull of the Golden/Field RCMP detachment.

Hull went on and said the Lions had recently purchased a number of Cops for Kids badges as another way to support the effort.

Hull added the support has been  very important to help fund money which is then going back into the community.

“We are at over $8,000 for local kids with another big announcement coming soon,” Hull said.

Former President of the Lions in Golden, Orlando Pecora, was on hand with Lions member Robert Anderson for the presentation.

“We look for projects of this nature that we can do. We do not have a huge amount of money but if we can help a lot of people with small amounts it helps out,” Pecora said.
