Lions, Leader team up to make Christmas merry for less fortunate

If you purchased this newspaper from a member of the Oxford Lions Club, then you’ve just helped make Christmas a little merrier for those less fortunate.

The Oxford Leader donated 800 copies of this edition to the Lions Club, so its members could conduct their annual Goodfellows Newspaper sales on Friday, Nov. 30 and Saturday, Dec. 1.

Lions members are braving the cold and traffic at the intersections of Burdick St. and M-24 and W. Drahner and M-24 to raise money for the Christmas baskets they distribute every year to our neighbors in need.

These baskets contain food, new clothing and donated toys for kids because every child deserves to have something under the tree. This year’s drive will benefit 29 individuals and 23 families with children.

For more information about joining the Oxford Lions Club, please call (810) 797-5840 or (248) 628-1293.
