Lions collecting goods for vets

The North Haven Lions will be back at the North Haven Congregational Church, Saturday, Sept. 11, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., to Restock the Food Banks. The Lions also will be collecting items for Veterans Stand Down, an annual program sponsored by the Connecticut Department of Veterans Affairs.

Items sought for veterans include men’s and women’s personal care items, socks, underwear, gloves and knit hats. As part of the Veterans Stand Down program, on Friday, Sept. 24, at five locations across the state, veterans will have access to a variety of in-person services, personal need items, vaccinations, legal services, medical screenings, and meals-to-go.

Also, the North Haven Lions will be collecting eyeglasses, as well as dog and cat food and treats, at their Restock effort.
