The Nipomo Lions Club recently donated $1,000 to Project Lifesaver of San Luis Obispo and Northern Santa Barbara counties.

According to the Project Lifesaver website, its mission is to “provide timely response to save lives and reduce potential injury for adults and children who wander due to Alzheimer’s, autism and other related conditions.”

Clients enrolled in the program wear a personalized wristband that emits a tracking signal that can be traced by a search-and-rescue team, making it easier and faster to find the wanderer.

The project is in partnership with local Lions Clubs, the SLO County Sheriff’s Office and Senior Volunteer Services.
