Lakeville Cares
LakevilleCares logo
The goal is to connect those in need with things they may need and connect those that have things to give with this group.  Masks, hand sanitizer, and food are the focus.   We are trying to build a hub that connects all of the needs for those who live or work in or around Lakeville.  Having those connections in one place may make it easier and faster for all of us to provide service to those in need. 
Our focus for the week is;
Homemade Mask Drive:  We are working on collecting homemade masks for those in need.   Many in Lakeville are sewing masks but do not have the material needed to make more.  We are also running a donation drive to collect material from those who cannot sew and give it to those who can.
As we collect masks, a great goal would be to provide one to anyone in our city who needs one.
Food Shelf/Food Pantry Services:  We are working on connecting those in need of food shelf services with the food.   Many people in need of food shelf services have never experienced this need.
Senior/compromised immune systems persons:  making sure those in the community with compromised immune systems and our seniors have what they need.
Spreading the word:  Our goal is to NOT replace any other groups effort, only connect them with the community to avoid duplication of effort and to get people what they need.   Please pass along this information to any group that may have product or services to donate or may have a group of volunteers that can be called on to assist with needs like bagging groceries.   Have them send an e-mail to
We will be asking groups to help us get the word out about our mask donation project.
COVID-19 Community Support
A new Facebook page was put in place last week, Lakeville Rotary Club Community Support,, this is a private Lakeville Rotary Club page that Rotarians can utilize to post/respond to areas where support is needed. 
This week we have 1 new posting, See below.
