The Park Rapids Lions Club recently made donations to three local organizations as part of their effort to be of service in their community.

A $1,000 donation will be used by the Park Rapids to Puerto Rico group. The donation will be used to help purchase a portable water purification system that will provide 2,500 to 3,300 gallons of potable water per day.

This is the third year that the Park Rapids Lions Club is co-sponsor of the Kinship Spaghetti Feed on Friday, Sept. 21 at the Park Rapids American Legion Club. In addition to their $500 donation, Lions will also be working at this event.

They also donated $500 to Helen's Kitchen, a program that serves free meals to area residents.
