Letter: A new ‘Shop Like a Lion’ record

The Rappahannock community might like to know that the Lions just received its July payment from Amazon, and for the first time in the history of the “Shop Like a Lion” program, we’ve earned more than $1,000 in a year.

If you shop at Amazon, and go through the Rappahannock Lions Club website when you do so (rappahannocklions.org), we earn money for our community. Each purchase done this way earns us a 4-percent commission. So far, we’ve raised nearly $5,000.

All of the money we receive goes to the county fire and rescue squads.

It’s great to see the way this program has grown. I encourage everyone to continue using it, and to encourage their friends and neighbors to do so, also. There is no additional cost to shop this way, so it becomes a painless way for us all to help.
