A mutually beneficial partnership between the Mark Preece House in Hamilton, Ontario, and the Rockton Lions Club, a local service organisation committed to community support, has been established.
Thanks to the Rockton Lions Club’s generous donations, the Mark Preece House can keep providing essential shelter and services to the city’s homeless population. The Mark Preece House has benefited monetarily and otherwise from the Lions Club’s financial contributions and volunteer efforts.
The Rockton Lions Club has been instrumental in facilitating the annual Mark Preece Family Day celebration. Mark Preece was a Hamiltonian who lost his life due to homelessness, and this annual event is held in his honour to bring the community together and honour his life with a day filled with festivities. The Rockton Lions Club has been an instrumental partner in the planning and execution of this event, providing both financial and manpower resources.
The Mark Preece House and the Rockton Lions Club have formed a partnership to combat homelessness in the area. Support from the Lions Club has been crucial in allowing the Mark Preece House to help those in need, and the continued collaboration between these two groups promises to have a lasting, positive effect on the Hamilton area.
