The Vandalia Lions Club is pleased to announce that the Lions Club International has responded to the needs to the victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas.
In a letter received from International President Dr. Naresh Aggarwal, it was announced the Lions Club International Foundation responded to the disaster with an Emergency Catastrophe Grant in the amount of $100,000.
This grant is given to Lions of the areas affected to provide lifesaving supplies of food, water, blankets and other necessities to those in need. All of the grant is used for this service.
The Vandalia Lions Club is very proud to be a part of this service to our fellow countrymen, and to the world.
