LCIF Icon Disaster Relief smOhio Lions District OH1 has partnered with the Logan County United Way to support the relief and recovery efforts taking place after the EF3 Tornado on March 14th which flattened the communities of Russells Point and Lakeview, Ohio, as well as causing extensive damage in surrounding rural areas.  You may make donations in the following ways.

Tax deductible donations can be made at: www.uwlogan.org, the web address for the Logan County United Way which is a 501(c)3 charity. If you want your donation to be credited to the Lions Organization, after entering your name as listed on the credit card you use for donating, add a dash and a Lion label. Examples could be: Jane Doe – OH4 Lions or John Doe – Pennsylvania Lions. The Logan County United Way Donation system automatically issues a receipt for tax purposes and can sort donations based on key words; hence, the need to add Lions to the name of the donor.

If you or your club wish to donate by check, use District Lions OH1 on the designation line and add& tornado relief on the memo line. Mail the check to: PDG John Davis, 933 Thornapple Lane, Findlay, Ohio 45840. If your check does not identify your club, please add a note in the mailing with that information.

The relief and recovery process is well underway, and the local community has stepped up admirably. However, this will be a long and difficult process and organizations like ours will play an important role in supporting those affected as they work to overcome this blow thrown their way.
