For over 50 years, Croton Lions Club members have given of themselves to serve the needs of others.
The Lions Club loans wheelchairs, crutches and other hospital equipment to help the sick and injured. They provide scholarships to high school seniors and send blind adults and children to the Vacation Camp for the Blind. The Lions also support the Guiding Eyes for the Blind organization.
If you would like to join or would like further information, call 271-5200.
The key objective of the men and women who are Rotarians is commitment to the development of acquaintance, as an opportunity for service beginning in their local Club's community.
The Croton-On-Hudson Club sponsors two main fundraising events every year: the Kellerhouse Scholarship Dinner/Dance in the Spring and an Auto Show in the Fall Proceeds raised from the Kellerhouse event are awarded in the form of scholarships. Recipients are local senior high school students who demonstrate the highest level of commitment to community service. Sponsorships include Little League, various other school activities, an annual Senior Citizen's luncheon, food donations for the Croton Food Bank, and national and international designated programs.
CROTON CARING COMMITTEE
38 Penfield Avenue
Croton on Hudson, NY 10520
The Committee was founded in 1981 to help the frail elderly, the homebound, the handicapped and the needy in Croton-on-Hudson. Its members give freely of themselves to improve the lives of others.
Members provide food, clothing and transportation to medical appointments and shopping centers. The Committee's meals-at-home program delivers two nourishing meals to the homebound five days per week. Periodic visits to area nursing homes bring smiles to those who might otherwise spend another lonely day.
