LCIF Disaster Relief Grant pilot program

Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) is excited to share with you a new Disaster Relief Grant pilot program that is now available in Constitutional Areas I, III and V through March 2015.
LCIF Disaster Pilot coverBecause Lions worldwide continue to prioritize disaster relief as one of their most important local service activities, LCIF is now piloting a wider variety of funding options to help enhance and expand these efforts. The LCIF Disaster Relief Grant program can support Lions’ participation in different phases of emergency management based on the needs of their community and the skills, interests, and availability of their local membership.
This pilot project will determine the effectiveness of new grants that are designed to:
  • Strengthen local disaster relief project coordination
  • Encourage and support advance planning for disasters
  • Leverage Lions’ strengths in the community

Can You Help Morgan Hill Lions?

CCI Service Dog - 2014-03-08

 The Morgan Hill Lions club is reaching out on behalf of a special-needs family who is desperately looking for a rental home in the Morgan Hill/Gilroy area.

The family of four includes a husband and their young adult son both stricken with Huntington’s disease, a devastating, hereditary, degenerative brain disorder. The third member is an 83-year old disabled aunt. The family also has a live-in caregiver.

The family must move out from their current Morgan Hill rental in the next few months. Some local churches in Morgan Hill are helping towards the deposit for another house.

The family requires a single-story home with four bedrooms and three bathrooms. The home must allow for a certified service dog and two emotional support cats. They must be near a bus route so they can use the Outreach taxi service for the disabled.

If you can help this family or if you would like additional information, please contact:
Lion Jeanine (408) 210-5515(408) 210-5515.

The Morgan Hill Lions are neighbors helping neighbors. This neighbor needs help finding a new home. Please help spread the word through your friends and family.
