Video: California Wildfire Disaster Relief
When disaster strikes, Lions respond immediately. When word spread that hundreds of people were forced to evacuate their homes due to the Yosemite Rim fire, the worst in California history, Lions from 64 clubs in California quickly mobilized to provide relief. Within hours, they were brought on board to help the American Red Cross set up an evacuation center, and within 24 hours, they volunteered to run the kitchen and were serving meals to displaced families.
Thanks to an emergency grant from LCIF, in addition to donations from local restaurants and food pantries, Lions are able to feed 1,200 meals a day to fire fighters, Red Cross volunteers and evacuees.
