Relief Efforts for Texas

Good morning fellow Lions,

As the rain begins to slow in Texas, now is the time for all of us to come together and offer assistance where we can. While many of us are not able to be “boots on the ground”, we can send donations to assist those who have lost everything.

Currently, the Dunnellon Lions Club is taking donations to fill a tractor trailer, and will be leaving soon for Houston and surrounding areas.

Items needed include: Non-perishable Food and Baby Food, Diapers, cleaning supplies, Feminine Products, Water (lots of water), Children’s and Adult Tylenol, Shoes, Socks, Food Supplies (paper plates, plastic utensils, napkins, etc.), and anything else you may wish to send.

All monetary donations should be done through LCIF and earmarked for General Disaster/Hurricane Harvey and you can request that these monies be put toward a future Melvin Jones for the club or for an individual. If fundraisers are being held, donor lists with allocations should be provided so that they can issue tax receipts to donors, whether clubs, non-Lions, or local businesses.

Items can be sent directly to the Dunnellon Lions Club President at:

Dunnellon Lions Club
C/O Frank Gatlin
15955 SW 27th Lane,
Ocala FL. 34481

Donations that arrive after the truck has left will be placed on another truck.

Thank you for your help
