Kent-Sussex Industries (KSI) announced recently that they had received a generous donation from the Lord Baltimore Lions Club in Ocean View. The $1,000 will be used for general expenses incurred by KSI as they continue their mission.
“Members of the Lord Baltimore Lions Club have supported KSI and embraced abilities for nearly three decades,” Alicia Hollis, Director of Community Relations, said. “This donation will help us continue to provide services to those who are differently abled.”
KSI provides vocational training, employment, community integration, transportation, day habilitation, life enrichment and nutritional services throughout Sussex and Kent Counties. KSI, a not-for-profit agency, is committed to making all reasonable accommodations in order to ensure that its programs and services are as accessible as possible to as many people as possible.
Lions Club International was founded in 1917 by Melvin Jones, a Chicago business leader. The mission from the beginning has been to “create and foster a spirit of understanding among all people for humanitarian needs by providing voluntary service through community involvement and international cooperation.” The Lord Baltimore Club serves Bethany Beach, Ocean View, Millville, Frankford, Clarksville and Dagsboro.
The Club was chartered in 1946 by a group of businesspeople in the Ocean View area and continues to carry the initial vision. The club provides vision screenings, maintains an inventory of medical equipment and funds eye exams for both adults and children in need. In addition, the club supports efforts to address hunger, assists in the construction of handicap ramps, supports Special Olympics and much more.
The generous donation was presented at a recent dinner by Janet Bauer, President of the Lord Baltimore Lions Club.
