The Mt. Vernon Lions Club was recognized by Iowa Kidsight for being a screening team. The Mt. Vernon Lions Club took over for the Lions District Screening Team in 2017 and is proud to provide this service to the Mt. Vernon Community.
The Mt. Vernon Lions Club with Do Something Great Trivia raised over $500 to help Mt. Vernon Community School District Kids in Need Program. Brian Jaffe and Justin Pigeon of Do Something Great Trivia said. "It was an honor to partner with the Mount Vernon, Iowa Lions Club! We had a great time connecting with your community and providing opportunities for families and friends to come together, get smarter, and compete - and to donate over $500 to support the kids in your community! The money raised went to MVCSD Kids in Need. Kids in Need is a fund that is maintained by donations to help children and families of Mount Vernon. They help families with food, lunch money, housing, clothing, gas, Christmas gifts and much much more!
They also fund the Mustang Snack Pack. This is a program that gives in-need children a sack of non perishable items to take home over the weekend and on holiday breaks.
