Dear Fellow Lions,
We are still going through trying times around our District. Most clubs are not meeting or meeting via video, our convention was cancelled and we all look forward to getting out and about again.
Although we may not be as active at the club and district level our International Foundation continues to meet needs around the world. This is the time many clubs have made donations to the Foundation, and it is just as important to do so again this year.
We are looking at the possibility of a $10,000 Emergency Grant from the Foundation for relief here in Montana from the effects of COVID-19. We have been working with the Billings and Bozeman areas as they have the majority of cases, however I will be working with the Food Banks around the state. At present the Food Banks are not eligible, however, the BODs are looking at including them as recipients.
I will keep you informed of any changes, but the need is there, not only for COVID-10 relief, but also for hurricane, tornado and flood relief which will be coming into the forefront soon.
Remember 100% of all donations from clubs and individuals go to relief and are tax deductible for individuals.
Yours in Lionism, PDG Lary Garrison, LCIF Dist. 37 Chair
