Rep. Batinick Joins AT&T in Donation to Shorewood Lions Club

PLAINFIELD – State Representative Mark Batinick (R-Plainfield) was excited to further join AT&T in their local community investment by serving a $1,000 donation to the philanthropic Shorewood Lions Club. The local Lions Club prides itself on community prosperity. It has many initiatives to help students and seniors, including transportation to health exams and programs that offer more affordable health products such as glasses and hearing aids. Its family-oriented initiatives also involve Halloween costume contests and coming in January a spaghetti dinner for any and all to attend to help fundraise more community benefits.

Rep. Batinick stated, “I enjoy staying involved with the communities I serve, and I’m delighted to offer this donation to a group that remains constantly on the pulse of the Shorewood area. I’d like to encourage everyone to consider joining their local Lions Club in order to serve their neighbors and keep our communities great.”

Lion Noelle Viola said, “We are always thrilled to have new members, of any age. I invite any interested people to check out our Facebook page at Shorewood Lions Club and get involved in any way they can. Our group meets at the Joliet Elks Club on the second Wednesday of every Month. Our next meeting is on November 11 at 6:30PM. Please come see what we offer our neighbors, and consider getting involved.”
