SPRINGFIELD TWP.  Dr. Michael Kaisk and his wife, Jessica (Kungl) Kaisk, who own and operate Kaisk Community Chiropractic in Springfield Township, presented a $1,000 donation to the Lakemore Lions Club during its Nov. 13 meeting.

Treasurer Rich Cole said the generous donation will be used for projects such as sight-saving initiatives, community projects and/or college scholarships for Springfield High School students.

The chiropractic practice is named well because the husband wife team is very committed to community. Each quarter of the year, the Kaisk’s make a donation to a charity. The Kaisks’ said the donations are from the new patient services of each quarter. The costs of first visit services for each new patient are donated back to the community.

Both Kaisks are Springfield High School graduates who returned home to open the chiropractic practice in 2016. Since their beginning in Springfield, they have donated to a variety of charities. The charity for this quarter is the Battered Women’s Shelter. Some of the past donations have gone to Alzheimer’s Association and Breast Cancer.

"It is so wonderful to have Dr. Mike Kaisk and Jessica Kaisk in our Lakemore/Springfield community," said club Treasurer Rich Cole. "Their business is here, and they are actively involved in so much. On behalf of the entirety of the Lakemore Lions Club, we thank them for their continued generosity and willingness to make the world a better place for all of us."

The Lakemore Lions Club began in October 2016 and has already proven to fill many needs of the community.

Since its beginnings, the club has raised $11,000. It has donated to Springfield Police Officer Mike McQuillen, who has had a 15 month stay in the hospital; a Springfield resident who lost everything in a house fire; and to Springfield Cares for the back pack and school supply back-to-school giveaway. Also, it has donated two bulletproof vests to the Lakemore Fire Department and to a total of 12 charitable organizations at the Lions Club Centennial District Convention. Other contributions went to Lakemore’s Share a Christmas program and to purchase a kennel and roof for the Lakemore Police Department.
