Fridley Public Schools

For the ninth year, the Fridley Lions Club donated gift cards to every Fridley Public Schools elementary classroom teacher on September 1. The gift cards help with the purchase of supplies for each classroom, such as crayons, tissues and arts and crafts materials.

Lion’s Club members Greg Gardner, Don Holum, Shannon Melham and Jim and Jo Young presented gift cards in the amount of $150 to the teachers, and to express their appreciation and gratitude.

“Thank you for all that you do every single year,” said Jo Young, Fridley Lions Club president. “Teachers are such an important part of our community, and the Lions have a deep love for the education you provide and the incredible job that you do.”

This year, the Lions Club partnered with the Fridley Schools Foundation to purchase Amazon gift cards, which helped the Foundation earn Amazon Smile points. Through Amazon Smile, charitable organizations can benefit from a portion of any purchase. The Fridley Schools Foundation is a nonprofit organization that contributes to scholarships for graduating seniors, educator innovation grants, and school and district initiatives in the Fridley school district.

The Lions support the district through donations to its athletics and activities programs, and sponsorships of programs and events such as the Fridley High School Scholastic Achievement Scholarship Banquet and the Foundation’s “Get Your Paws Moving” fundraiser.
