As many of you are aware, a deadly tornado touched down near Oklahoma City yesterday afternoon killing more than 20 people, including 7 children, and injuring hundreds. The storm ravaged the suburb of Moore, Oklahoma with 200 mph winds destroying the Plaza Towers Elementary School, a hospital and many homes. The storm system has impacted towns and cities not only in Oklahoma but also in Iowa and Kansas, trapping people in shelters and rubble.
Without delay, Lions Clubs International Foundation responded, helping local Lions with a major catastrophe grant of US$100,000 from the disaster relief fund to assist with recovery and long term reconstruction. As always, local Lions are assisting their family, friends and neighbors with immediate care and attention, but they need your help.
Please assist your fellow Lions by donating or encouraging clubs and Lions in your district to donate to the disaster relief fund. All disaster relief fund donations are Melvin Jones Fellowship eligible. You can donate at the following link: https://www.lcif.org/EN/ways-to-give/lion-disaster-donation.php
Thank you for your generosity!
