HOW YOU CAN HELP

During these uncertain times, so much help is needed! First and foremost, please exercise personal responsibility by abiding by all of our preventative protocols and cdc guidelines (see cdc.gov for more information). If everyone does their part, we will get through this crisis more quickly. Help out friends and neighbors in need by offering to pick up/drop off essentials, bringing trash receptacles to/from the street, assisting with on-line ordering etc. Check in on each other, especially on our seniors and most vulnerable. If you are able and would like to contribute, here are some places and some ways that directly benefit our community. There are many others! Please help wherever and however you can! Thank you for your generosity and Pioneer Spirit! We will get through this together!

New Providence Lions Mask Making Program & Device Collection


YOUR HELP IS NEEDED!

The New Providence Lions Club has served the community for over 50 years. Most of our efforts benefit the New Providence Community, but we also support Lions International Outreach initiatives including Vision, Childhood Cancer, Diabetes Awareness, Environment and Natural Disaster Relief.

The recent COVID -19 virus outbreak in our area has created an urgent need for masks and electronic devices to support our healthcare workers battling the virus on the frontlines in our regional hospitals.

This is a community effort which has been led by Joe Savino Owner of Adams Fine Clothing in New Providence. Joe Savino asked the NP Lions Club for assitance with organizing, cutting, sewing and distributing the masks to needy healthcare workers in our region.

In addition, there is a urgent need for smartphones, tablets and baby monitors. The smartphones and tablets are used in two ways. First, for patients to communicate with their family and loved ones, as visitors are not permitted. Second, for the caregivers themselves, who are quarantined, to communicate with their family and loved ones. Many caregivers have not seen their family in weeks. Due to overcrowding in hospitals, makeshift ICU units have been setup to expand capacity and baby monitors are used extensively by the doctors and nurses to continuously monitor patients in the extended ICU units.
