With a check for $2,000 dollars in hand, Jamie McDermott stopped by the offices of the Concerned Citizens of Whitesboro this month. As outgoing president of the Avalon Lions Club, the donation is one of his last official duties and one he enjoys the most.

The Concerned Citizens is a community based non-profit organization in Cape May County that works with local youngsters to support their educational needs and life’s goals.

The CCWI is one of a dozen Cape May County charities including the Helen L. Diller Vacation Home for Blind Children, Habitat for Humanity and Holy Redeemer Food Bank supported by the Lions. The Lions motto is, “We Serve”. Promise made, promise kept.
