The Daleville-Fincastle Lions presented a $9,000 check to the Botetourt Food Pantry at the club meeting on November 14. The $9,000 check was funded jointly by the Daleville-Fincastle Lions, $3,000, and by a grant from the Lions of Virginia Foundation, $6,000. In addition to financial support from the club, the Daleville-Fincastle Lions also volunteer to assist with the food distribution at the Food Pantry once a month. The Food Pantry is serving an ever-increasing number of families who need food assistance. The average number of families served each month in 2023, to date, is approximately 20% higher than 2022.
