Mill City Lions Club to assist with service integration

The Mill City Lions Club is teaming up with Santiam Hospital’s Service Integration Team (SIT) on community assistance projects in the Santiam Canyon.

The Lions Club will become a sustaining donor and will be contributing twice a year to the SIT team’s Neighbor to Neighbor fund. 

Funds in the past have been used for groceries, auto repair, and medications, said Kimberly Dwyer, who coordinates the team for Santiam Hospital. The goal is to fill gaps in resources to meet locally identified needs of individuals and families.

“It means a lot knowing that other organizations trust that Santiam Service Integration will be good stewards of their donated funds,“ Dwyer told The Canyon Weekly. “If there are any other organizations or businesses that would like to donate to the fund, they can email me at [email protected].” 

“The Neighbor to Neighbor fund is a great way for our club to help locals in need,” said Steve Dougherty, president of the Mill City Lions Club. “We are so pleased to be able to support the valuable work that SIT does in our local communities.”

Lions Club officials also noted some upcoming events in a news release.

• The club is holding its Sweetheart Dinner on Feb. 10 as a fundraiser with a focus on funding college scholarships and trade school grants.

•The club also is organizing a health fair for the public to be held April 17 at the Canyon Service Center in Mill City. 

Those interested in joining the club or participating in the Sweetheart Dinner or health fair should contact Dougherty at 503-566-8899 or [email protected].
