Shoeboxes brighten up Christmas for children in need
Empty shoeboxes transformed into attractive Christmas present boxes
Every year the LFC collects and festively decorates empty shoeboxes, donated by individuals or shoe shops who are more than happy to get rid of their waste cardboard. It takes about 15 minutes to decorate each one by hand - as well as nimble fingers to neatly cut, glue and wrap the festive paper. Once the boxes have had their make-over, they are filled by the LFC members with age-appropriate presents. The LFC also organise their distribution via the different children’s charities, organisations and social services.
€10,000 donated to the Institut pour Déficients Visuels
In the context of its 'Coin for Kids' projects, the Lions Club Erasmus recently donated €10,000 to the Institut pour Déficients Visuels (Luxembourg's Institute for the Visually Impaired) for the purchase of two enlargement systems to aid visually impaired young people.
This system will enable students to participate in a normal school environment and permit them to complete their education in Luxembourg.
