We recently received a $17,500 grant for our Karis Apartments! This money will go toward furnishing the new 34-unit apartment complex that’s under construction for homeless youth.The project should be finished by late summer or early fall.

Karis Executive Director John Mok-Lamme said this is the largest grant for furnishing that the organization has received to date.“These kids come in right off the street and need a place to store their clothing,” he said.

In the past 10 years, the Lions club has given nearly $2 million to the local community. It raises funds through the sale of raffle tickets.

Thank you GJ Lions Club!
