The Mira Mesa Lions Club is in the final round of the annual State Farm Neighborhood Assist Grant Competition, and is looking for your support to win $25,000.

Their project, “Health and Help,” was chosen as one of 200 projects nationwide selected for the final round. “Health and Help” proposes using the State Farm grant to open a permanent food and clothing pantry to serve Mira Mesa residents in need, and purchase vision and other medical screening equipment to host regular health screening clinics around the community.

The top 40 vote recipients in the competition will each receive a $25,000 grant. To help the Mira Mesa Lions become one of the grant winners, go to to register. Then each day from now through August 24, visit the Mira Mesa Lions “Health and Help” page to vote –
