Lions go to work at Boys and Girls Club
The Waiakea Lions Club sponsored a work day on May 25 at the Boys and Girls Club of the Big Island’s Pahoa Club. The island’s premier youth organization was once again selected by the Waiakea Lions Club as the recipient of the Weinberg Project supported by the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation.
Along with this service project, Boys and Girls Club of the Big Island (BGCBI) was awarded a check in the amount of $10,000 from the Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Foundation to further the mission of the Waiakea Lions Club, Harry & Jeanette Weinberg and the Boys & Girls Club of the Big Island.
The Boys and Girls Club of the Big Island and the Waiakea Lions Club have a long history of partnership, as far back as the 1960s when the Waiakea Lions Club helped construct the baseball fields in Hilo and installed the fencing that still stands today. Many of the members of the Waiakea Lions Club were also once members of the Boys and Girls Club and are now giving back to the club by volunteering their time and expertise.
The Waiakea Lions Club was joined by other community groups and volunteers, including the Puna Lions Club.
