Members of Del Sol Lions presented a check for $2,000 to Raphael Rodmel, coordinator of the St. Leo Mission’s food distribution program and Jannet Diaz, director, Hispanic Ministry at St. Leo Mission in Solana Beach. The food distribution program serves over 70 families each week. Lions Club members also delivered over 350 pounds of fresh citrus contributed by local residents.

If you wish to participate in the Citrus Fresh program with fruit from your trees, contact and the Del Sol Lions will pick up, or pick and deliver to St. Leo Mission.
