The Airdrie Lioness Club is so proud of our community involvement!

Highlights of Some of Our Service Programs

The Airdrie Lioness Club Hamper Foundation, a Registered Charity with CRA, provides a number of services and support in Airdrie. Our largest program is the Adopt-A-Family Christmas Hamper Program, which helps over 350 families have a Merry Christmas.

When you think of the Lioness you think of Pies and Christmas Hampers. We do make pies and we do make Christmas Hampers but we also do so much more!

Our focus is to help every dynamic within our community - Children, Teens, Seniors and families within Airdrie.

We sponsor Senior’s week and serve at their luncheon because it’s important to let the elder residents of our community know that they are appreciated and not forgotten. We provide for a few comfort items for them to enjoy in what should be their golden years. We installed a gas fireplace in Bethany because the original wood burning one was deemed unsafe.

For children and teens and families, we support the Airdrie Library by purchasing state of the art computers for primary children, because our future, the future of Airdrie depends upon growing children that can access the tools they need for a brilliant future. We’ve provided funds to build within the library because it faces a growing demand for its services by so many youth and adults. Literacy is paramount to a prosperous community. With that same line of thought, we donate to build school playgrounds, a safe haven for physical activity and creativity. We’ve purchased books for school libraries to expand their reading programs.

Community Links is a recipient of funds through the Lioness for emergency needs and programs for youth and families as well as The Airdrie Food Bank. With the Airdrie Food Bank, the Lioness has sponsored the Milk Program, The Breakfast Program, and The Snack Attack Program in schools and provided funds to help purchase the freezers that the Food Bank need to store fresh grocery items.

The Airdrie Lioness enables all these organizations to expand their programs and their facilities. We provide within the Food Bank our Caring Closet. That’s a place where parents that are struggling financially can go and pick out a birthday gift for their child at no cost. We’ve visited all the schools within Airdrie to inform their support facility to let parents know that there is help available.

I don’t know if any of you have taken a train ride at Ironhorse Park but we provided funds to allow them to build a birthday room and do some landscaping. This allows them to make the funds they need to keep the trains running. They provide a wonderful place for Airdrie families to enjoy.

The Lioness has supported The Boys and Girls Club, Supplies for Success. The list is long. Because wherever we find the need within Airdrie - we do our best to fill it. The Lioness isn’t limited to helping one specific program, we work to help as many as we can to make the biggest impact.

We make blankets. It’s another great team-building activity that has benefited the Neo Natal department of the Children’s Hospital, as well as seniors and families in crisis. Our way of giving them a warm hug.

Do you know that we provide hampers even though it’s not Christmas. Because there is always someone in need – a family that’s lost a loved one, or have lost their home in a fire, or are just struggling to get by.

We serve our community with Pride and Joy and are blessed to live in Airdrie.
