Post Hurricane Irma

We need to gather information from our district as to the extent of damages caused by Hurricane Irma, and to encourage each club to contact us for any assistance your area needs.

Please contact me at frank@dunnellonlionsclub.com so I can pass this information along to Governor Diane Melnick.

Thank you

IRMA SURVIVORS


Passing along…IRMA SURVIVORS…Please share with anyone in Irma’s path. They will
thank you later once they are out of shock!
Here goes:

1. File with FEMA and get your FEMA number ASAP! You will need it for everything.
Download the FEMA app now. They now prefer that you register online rather than the
phone.
2. File a claim with BOTH your homeowner’s and flood insurance. Even though it’s a
flood, homeowners will cover some wind damage and most of them will give you money
for “loss of use” if you can’t live in your house.
3. File for DSNAP-Disaster food stamps. ANYONE in the affected areas can get them,
they are not just for poor people. Do not be proud, you can use the money you save
on food to replace clothes and other necessities.
4. File for Disaster Unemployment. Again, DO NOT BE PROUD! If you can’t live in
your house or go to work because your work is closed or flooded, this applies to
you.
5. Get rental assistance. FEMA and SBA provide rental assistance to help pay for a
place to live until you can get back into your house or find a new one.
6. If you want to buy a house, apply for an SBA loan. The interest rates will be
VERY CHEAP. Although it is called the SBA, it is for homeowner too.
7. The Salvation Army and American Red Cross will sometimes give away money as
well. Just call them and apply.
8. Check local businesses for specials and discounts for people in the affected
flood areas. Businesses will offer everything from half price pizza to furniture
and clothing specials.
9. Call all of your bill collectors and notify them that you are in the affected
area and/or that your house flooded. Most will delay your bill due dates for a
month or two. This includes your mortgage company, cable, electricity, water,
credit card companies, phone etc.
10. Most importantly, allow people to help you! They want to and you need the help!
Please pass this along to anyone who may benefit from it.

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.
ALL DONATIONS WILL BE SENT TO TEXAS.

Thank you for your help

Come and join with your fellow Lions and take part in
our District wide Service Project to help fight hunger in our communities.

We will be collecting non-perishable food items at all of our District Cabinet Meetings to help with the growing problem of hunger facing many of our friends and neighbors. We are asking each Lion to bring at least one non-perishable food item to be collected and taken to a nearby shelter for distribution.
If you should happen to forget – not to worry – we will be selling mock food items for you to purchase with the funds generated being donated to the local shelters for the purchase of needed food items. With your help we can help ease some of these ongoing needs.
