A local group is celebrating 100 years of their club internationally by stepping up to support Habitat for Humanity.
 
A district of the Lions Clubs International chose to support the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project by helping feed volunteers.
 
This is a Habitat for Humanity project that will see 150 homes built across Canada, including a build in Fort Saskatchewan, to mark Canada's 150th year as a country.
 
“Habitat for Humanity really mirrors a lot of the principles and morals that we as Lions Club members want to portray in the community,” explained Claude Carignan of Lions Club District C1. “They want to ensure that all of the families that are building a home have some sweat equity, so each family is required to provide 500 hours of work into their home.”
 
The work of providing meals for over 200 was too challenging for one club take on, so all the Lion Clubs of District C1 came together to help. They organized donations from each club, arranged the caterers for breakfast and lunch throughout the week and gathered volunteers, with each club in the district taking on a meal.
 
“It was incredibly generous of the Lions Club to offer to take on the role of feeders during the week,” said Scott Custance, a Habitat for Humanity volunteer.
 
The project wraped up on Friday (July 14).
