“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 donating to the disaster relief fund of Lions Clubs International Foundation.” This information was posted on the Lions Blog @ www.lionsclubs.org and links for donations appear on the page. Wherever and however we choose to donate to assist those in need please do so to a known organization such as the Red Cross, Salvation Army, LCIF or others with a proven track record.
