In the heart of Denver, a community is coming together to make a significant impact on the lives of low-income families. The Lion Project, in collaboration with Denver Public School’s FACE (Family and Community Engagement) program, is reaching out for your support. Our goal is to streamline the Friday food box preparations at Munroe Elementary, where dedicated mothers tirelessly work alongside generous food organizations to provide essential support to those in need.
Every Friday, a group of mothers at Munroe Elementary assembles food boxes for low-income families, pouring their hard work and hearts into this noble cause. To enhance their efforts, we have identified specific needs that will significantly improve the efficiency of their operation. Munroe Elementary is in need of 5 handcarts, 2 baker shelves, and produce bags to facilitate the seamless preparation and distribution of these vital food boxes.
How You Can Help:
We are reaching out to the community, asking for
your support in fulfilling these essential needs. Your contribution can make a significant difference in the lives of families who rely on these Friday food boxes for sustenance.
By donating handcarts, baker shelves, or produce bags, you are not only providing practical assistance but also becoming a part of a community-driven initiative that aims to make a positive impact. Your generosity will directly contribute to the smoother operation of Munroe Elementary’s Friday food box preparations, ensuring that more families receive the support they desperately need.
Join the Lion Project, Denver Public School’s FACE program, and the Munroe Elementary community in making a difference. Your contribution, no matter how big or small, will help us reach our goal of streamlining the Friday food box preparations and supporting low-income families in our community. Together, we can make a lasting impact on the lives of those who need it most. Thank you for your generosity and for being a part of this meaningful endeavor.
This past Saturday marked a momentous occasion for the Lion Project as we hosted our 3rd Annual Suitcase Drive, a heartwarming event aimed at collecting suitcases for kids in foster care. Despite the challenging weather conditions with strong gusts of wind, our community rallied together to collect more than 60 suitcases! THANK YOU GUYS!!!!
Mother Nature may have thrown us a curveball with blustery winds, but it was awesome to witness the unwavering dedication of our community. We braved the weather to contribute to a cause that truly makes a difference in the lives of children in foster care. The wind, symbolic of the challenges these kids face, became a shared obstacle that only strengthened our resolve to provide them with a sense of stability and dignity. And… we also had a warm car to run to if we needed a break.
The Lion Project Suitcase Drive
For many children in foster care, the experience of moving from one place to another can be both daunting and disheartening. The simple act of owning a suitcase can bring about a profound positive change. It not only provides a practical solution for transporting belongings but also symbolizes a commitment to breaking the cycle of uncertainty and instability that these children often face. By gifting them with a suitcase, we are offering a small but significant gesture of hope and normalcy.
To everyone who participated in the Suitcase Drive, whether by donating a suitcase, volunteering time, or spreading the word, we extend our heartfelt gratitude. Your support has made a tangible impact on the lives of children in foster care, offering them a brighter and more hopeful future. Thanks to your generosity, these children will no longer have to carry their belongings in garbage bags, a small yet powerful step toward restoring their sense of dignity and self-worth.
We collected 60+ suitcases
The success of the 3rd Annual Suitcase Drive amidst challenging weather conditions is a testament to the resilience and compassion of our community. Together, we have demonstrated that even the strongest winds cannot extinguish the flame of kindness. As we reflect on this remarkable event, let us carry this momentum forward, continuing to make a positive impact on the lives of those in need. The Lion Project’s commitment to fostering positive change remains steadfast, and with your ongoing support, we look forward to creating a brighter future for children in foster care. Thank you, everyone!

The Lion Project recently threw a luncheon that opened our eyes to the world of energy! Attendees were treated to a screening of Lion Media’s docuseries, The Energy Dilemma, and a Q&A session with its producer and director, Adam Stielstra, and executive producer, Bill Butler.
The Energy Dilemma is a compelling series that tackles some of the most pressing issues facing the energy industry today. From the impact of climate change to the pros and cons of various renewable energy sources, the series covers it all. The screening of the series was an eye-opening experience, and attendees left with a deeper understanding of the complexities of the energy industry and the challenges it faces.
But that wasn’t all! After the screening, attendees had the opportunity to chat with Adam Stielstra and Bill Butler during a Q&A session. They shared insights into the making of the series, the challenges they faced, and what they hoped viewers would take away from the series. The session was lively and engaging, and attendees left feeling inspired and informed.
This event was a great reminder of the kind of work that Lion Media can create. Adam and Bill’s ability to take complex issues and present them in an accessible and engaging way is truly remarkable. The Energy Dilemma is just one example of the talent that is within Lion Media, our sister company.
Overall, The Lion Project’s luncheon event was an absolute blast! It proved that learning can be fun, and that events like this can bring people together to engage with important issues. We’re grateful to Adam Stielstra, and Bill Butler for sharing their expertise and creating such an engaging series that will continue to grow!
We are thrilled to step into 2023 with you! We’ve got some wonderful events and service projects planned throughout the new year which you will be able to see on our website.
One of the items that we’re focusing on right now is beginning to consider what we want our 2024 theme to be! We want to continue to support kids and always want to serve the underserved. As Lions in our community, we want to stand in the gap for those vulnerable.
We would greatly appreciate it if you could take a look at our survey and put your vote in! There is a place for you to share your ideas if they are not listed. Also, there is a space on this survey to write in a non-profit that we should consider as our 2024 non-profit partner!
Thank you for your time and consideration on this!
