Bulldog Bags

Stolion Awards

  

Since its start in 2015, Stow-Munroe Falls Lions Club has been involved in a community-sponsored program benefiting children of the School District.  Bulldog Bags is a weekend food program for children receiving free or reduced lunches. The school system estimated that over 600 children in the school system do not have food available to them on weekends. 

We want students to show up Monday morning hungry for learning, not hungry for food. All bags are delivered to the schools the same day as packing and are anonymous to everyone except the teachers distributing the bags to the appropriate children. 

Originally starting with just the elementary schools it has now expanded to include the middle schools and a cupboard at the high school. The food bags contain an average of ten items per bag plus personal care items.

Normally we all look forward to having holiday meals with friends and families but some simply cannot afford to purchase the Thanksgiving meal. The Lions purchase and distribute Holiday Baskets, complete with all the traditional Thanksgiving foods to two families at each of the schools within the district that are selected by each school principal. The Lions never know who the recipients are as the school handles all communication with the families.
