The second Sunday of every month we can be found at the Long's Drug store in Pahoa from 9 am until 1 pm conducting a food drive for the Neighborhood Place of Puna.  On July 7, we raised over 350 lbs of food and $127 from the generous shoppers at Longs Drugs. On September 8th we raised 285 lbs of food and $102 and put in 29 hours of volunteer time!

Every year, Puna Lions help distribute free school supplies. This year we were at Saint Theresa's church in Mountain View and Makuu Marketplace on the rainy Saturday morning of June 22th.
