The Kirkland Lions Club recently donated $3,000 to the Kirkland Food Pantry. According to Kirkland Food Pantry volunteer John Royalty, this is the largest single donation to the pantry in its 21-year history. The Kirkland Lions Club was able to donate this amount due to a recent meat raffle, a very successful fundraiser conceived by Kirkland Lions Club President Greg Gissler. The community support for this event was tremendous, and the amount raised surpassed even Gissler's expectations.
