The Emo and District Lions would like to thank everyone who has donated to the Canadian Diabetes Association’s Clothesline program.
The clothing from the red bins in Emo is transported to Fort Frances, combined with all the donations from the Fort Frances bins and then shipped to Thunder Bay.
The clothing is then sold by the pound to various thrift stores and other businesses.
The money raised goes to support diabetes research in Canada.
The Lions would also like to thank Cloverleaf Grocery and Kaemingh Fuels for their help in transporting the bags of clothing to Fort Frances.
Just one request from the Lions Club–please place your clothing in a garbage bag before depositing them in the bins.
This will make the job of collecting the donations just a little bit easier.
Together we can help find a permanent cure for diabetes.
