HOW YOUR CLUB CAN HELP RONALD MC DONALD HOUSE

The House is still under construction (and currently housing families in a hotel) but there are still opportunities to support the house.

They are in need of many items including gift cards to offer to the families. Please see the attached Wish List.

They are also looking for clubs to fill snack bags for the families to offer convenient items to snack on while they are in the hotel. Please see the attached Snack Bag Flyer.

There is also the opportunity for clubs to bring a family style, catered meal to the hotel on Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays.

And you can keep collecting your pull tabs. The House is not currently accepting pull tabs so please hold on to them for now. Or they may also be donated to another House location.

EZSR

EZ Service Report for 4L4

We are excited to roll out our NEW and EASY way that ANYONE can report service projects in your clubs! The new tool is called EZSR which means Easy Service Reports. Any Lion can go

to the EZSR link and report the service project details including name, date and number of people and hours served. Any projects reported to EZSR will be credited directly to your club,

no need for your club Secretary or Administrator to report to MyLion, it’s already done! Please share the link and scan code to all of your club service project chairs and members to ensure

your service gets COUNTED! We will share printed promotional items at our first District meeting on August 6 so you can promote this new tool! Let’s work together to meet our district

goal of 100% reporting in 4L4! Together We Can!
