Letter: Coupeville Lions are keeping active during this pandemic


The Lions are not sleeping through the current health crisis. You will see Coupeville Lions Club members performing some essential services throughout our community to support those in need.

Perhaps you have seen a Lion shopping at Prairie Center. Our Lions are shopping for at-risk folks who call in their grocery list and never need to come into the store, as well as providing some much-needed relief to over-burdened grocery clerks.

We are helping distribute food with Meals on Wheels, distributions of food from Oak Harbor Help House and volunteering at and supporting Gifts From The Heart Food Bank.

We continue to provide loans of medical equipment for those in need, as well as eyeglass collection distributions. Lions are continuing to pick up trash along State Highway 20. Lions are also sewing masks to donate to WhidbeyHealth Hospital and Bloodworks Northwest.

Our Lions Club is providing meals to overworked employees at Careage, and we are continuing to seek out more ways to serve in this time of crisis.

This is a difficult time for all and it’s a time for the community to come together and support one another.

The Coupeville Lions Club has leapt into action to provide help where necessary and is proud to be a member of this wonderful community.

Brian Pulk, president

Coupeville Lions Club
