Apex Lions Provide Oklahoma Disaster Relief

By | May 22, 2013


Apex Lions Club responded quickly to provide disaster relief and contacted the local Lions Club in Norman OK, about 5 miles South of the storm’s path. Horace Johnson who coordinated this effort said “The Norman Lions Club has an active program to assist in such tragedies. “ Lions working with Lions to serve others in need is a long standing tradition for this International organization, according to Johnson. The Apex Lions Club sent by overnight courier a check for $ 1,000 to support the local Lions in Moore, OK to bring aid to families in need. Johnson stated that the local residents of Apex should feel good knowing that funds raised here locally at the Annual Fish Fry are going to help people who have lost everything in Oklahoma. At the same time that the Apex Lions were organizing their support, Lions International announced they were sending $ 100,000 from their disaster relief fund in support of the storm victims as well. Another important note that Johnson made is that 100% of the donations sent to the Oklahoma Lions Foundation will go directly to the victims.  “That is just what Lions do” he said.
