Families Matter

Thank you to the Calgary Lions Club!

Date: July 13, 2017


The shout out this mouth goes to the INCREDIBLE Bowness Lions Club. Where There's a NEED, There's a LION. Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller. And communities get better. That's because they help where help is needed – in their own communities and around the world – with unmatched integrity and energy.

These amazing group of civically minded and generous folks stepped forward to support the new Families Matter Parent Link Centre in Bowness.

Not only did we receive a gracious welcome to their board meeting, a wonderful meal prepared by them, but they listened carefully and responded generously to our request for support for our centre that will serve Calgary families with a variety of programs and services. 

Yesterday Families Matter received a cheque for $10,000.00 to aid in the extensive renovations that are required to prepare a safe and welcoming space for families.

Whether it is large gesture, like this $10,000.00, or the countless times the Lions have supported Families Matter events with their donation of time in preparing meals for our families, they have been fantastic people to work with.

Families Matter appreciates and thanks the Bowness Lions Club.

You guys are the BEST!
