We are very saddened by the tragic tornado disaster in Moore, Oklahoma. Rest assured, the Lions are doing their part with the recovery efforts and will be there as members of the community for the long-term rebuilding efforts.
There are several thousand Lions in eastern Oklahoma, and the Lions of the world will be there to support them in this time of great need.
Right now, we are sending a Major Catastrophe Grant of US$100,000 from LCIF’s disaster relief fund. This grant will support Lions in affected areas to immediately begin providing aid to those in need, such as food, water, clothing and medical supplies.
We are also providing emergency grants to assist with other destructive storms that have impacted parts of the USA in recent days.
The community of Moore, and all the Lions Club members in the area, need our support today to help their neighbors.
You can help by contributing to the disaster relief fund of Lions Clubs International Foundation. Donations to this fund are Melvin Jones Fellowship eligible and help Lions.
We will keep you updated as needs are more fully known, now and for as long as it takes.
