Freeport Lions Donate to Flood Victims
The need for fresh drinking water and household bleach became apparent when the flood waters of the Pecatonica River entered citizens' homes during torrential and successive rainstorms.
Freeport Lions Club members personally donated 11 cases of bottled drinking water, 5 gallon jugs of drinking water, and 11 gallons of bleach at their business meeting on Tuesday, July 25, 2017.
On Wednesday, July 26, 2017, several Lions delivered the donated water and bleach to The Salvation Army headquarters at 106 West Exchange Street.
