New Maryland Lions Club
The New Maryland Lions Club is a local service group committed to improving the health and wellness of fellow community members. Our local club strives to meet the needs of those less fortunate and to make our community a better place. All of the funds raised by the NM Lions Club are returned to the community in a variety of ways, such as scholarships, Christmas boxes, financial assistance, and one of our largest recipients – Portage Atlantic.
Portage Atlantic is based in New Brunswick and is a rehabilitation centre for teens and youth who have become addicted to drugs and/or alcohol.
New Maryland Lions’ most recognized event is their annual Toy & Food Drive. Held early each December, a parade of volunteers accompany Santa Claus as they wend their way through Village streets during three evenings, gathering food and toys. Through the generosity of New Maryland residents, along with our corporate sponsors and many, many volunteers, New Maryland Lions have been able to assist more than 170 families in the Greater New Maryland area each year, and contribute to local s helters and food banks, as well.
