At a recent meeting, the Saraland Lions Club presented plaques of appreciation to Jim Moore, owner of Moore Properties; Ben Smith, vice president of S/M transportation and Randy Herring, warehouse manager.
"Saraland Lions have used Mr. Moore's warehouse for the last three years for our annual fruit sale," said Martin Walker, spokesman for the Lions. And, he said, S/M transportation has, also for the last three years, loaded their forklift onto a trailer, unloaded it into Moore's warehouse and unloaded the cases of fruit off a 40-foot trailer, all at no charge to Saraland Lions Club.
The annual fruit sale is a fundraiser for Saraland Lions, and Walker said, "It's businesses in Saraland helping the Lions Club that make projects like like fruit sale a success each year." Because of their generosity, "We are able to help a lot of needy people with the profit from our projects," he said.
