A community outreach is underway to help the Elk Grove Lions Club replace valuable stolen equipment.

Last Friday the club's food trailer was stolen and when it was recovered two days later, over $20,000 worth of equipment was missing. The trailer and equipment was used at community-based events and fundraisers and is familiar site throughout Elk Grove. 

“We can’t do spaghetti feeds or pancake breakfasts to save our souls,” Elk Grove Lions Club Director William Hibbard said.


The trailer was stolen around 9 p.m. at the club’s storage yard that neighbors the Senior Center of Elk Grove on Sharkey Avenue. Hibbard said the Senior Center’s security camera system filmed a suspect driving a truck into the parking lot. 

To help replace the equipment, the club is seeking donations which can be made in any amount on the club's website, www.ElkGroveLionsFoundation.org. Simply click on the donate button. 


If you prefer to write a check, make it payable to the Elk Grove Lions Foundation and mail it to Elk Grove Lions Club, PO Box 465, Elk Grove, California 95759. Please note "Cooking Equipment" in the memo field.
