For Immediate Release
The Ridgecrest Lions have allocated some of their charity funds to establish a support fund to provide earthquake financial relief to Ridgecrest, Inyokern and Trona residents. Additional fundraising and grant applications are underway. These relief funds (when received) will be limited, but we will do as much as possible until the funds run out. The Lions want to help those residents who have a limited income and cannot return to their homes following the recent earthquakes. The Lions are working with our local Salvation Army to provide financial screening and to determine where the need is greatest. The relief funds will primarily be used to provide assistance for such things as: nights stay at a local Hotel/Motel; helping putting mobile homes back on their foundations; and assistance which aids residents in returning to their homes.
The Ridgecrest Lions ask residents to contact the Ridgecrest Salvation Army to determine how use of donated funds can best aid the resident. Ridgecrest Lions point of contact is Lion Steven Morgan at 760-977-2600
The Ridgecrest Lions Charity Foundation is a 501(C)3 Organization FEIN 27-3171052
Donations can be made in two ways: Make checks payable to Ridgecrest Lions Charity Foundation, with Earthquake in the memo field and sending to:
Ridgecrest Lions Club Inc.
P.O. Box 2301

Donations can also be made by going to the Ridgecrest Lions Face Book page and going to the GOFUNDME link.
