"MEALS for HEROES" during COVID-19


After talking with Mayor Briggs who brought this idea forward, The Prior Lake Lions and Smoke Signals™ a 501(C)3 nonprofit organization has set up a fund for First Responders in our community and have dedicated raising $15,000.00 + to purchase their lunches for those on active duty within the City of Prior Lake each day, who are risking their health and lives responding to call for help due to the Covid-19 virus as well as for other emergencies.  The PL Lions would like your support with this fund.  Would you consider donating to assist our First Responders, Police, Fire, and Paramedics at this time of crisis? 

How this would work is that those on active duty would order A lunch from a local partnering restaurant at a pre-set price. The restaurant would record the name daily, of the first responder and forward that to the fiduciary once a week, for re-imbursement from the fund.  This fund would continue until monies are exhausted.

There is no doubt that the Covid-19 problem is going to be on-going  for months and this would be a great help to those on the front lines of the disease.  We ask that you consider contributing today, your donation is tax deductible at the end of the year.

Thank you all, for thinking about our Prior Lake | Shakopee Mdewakanton Emergency First Responders, all whom have families they go home to after their active-duty shift and are doing all of us a great service.

Paul Stahler, President,  Prior Lake Lions
