MEDNA – The Medina Lions Club continued its community service project this week with a donation of 20 Tops gift cards of $25 each to the Senior Center of Western Orleans.

The presentation was made by Lions president Billy Roman to the Senior Center board president Lynn Creasey.

“We really appreciate the Lions’ gesture,” Creasey said. “We definitely have people who can use a little help, especially widows and those living on Social Security.”

Senior Center director Kelly Shaw, who was unable to attend the presentation, later distributed the cards to seniors she knew have limited incomes and would appreciate the extra help.

Shaw considers members of the Senior Center “her family,” and was thrilled at being able to provide this gift to 20 of them.

“I know which ones can use the extra help and I know they will be very thankful,” Shaw said.
