In Iowa, USA, Lions Clubs International Foundation District and Multiple District Coordinators wore special hard hats to the MD9 Iowa State Convention. The hard hats, which had “LCIF” written on them, represented LCIF’s support and disaster relief efforts in Iowa following recent storms. The hats also served to help other Lions identify who the LCIF Coordinator was for each district.

Lions Clubs International Foundation supported Lions in their disaster relief efforts by immediately approving a $100,000 major catastrophe grant. This grant is assisting with immediate and long term relief following the tornado. Lions District 3-H, where Moore is located, was also given a $10,000 emergency grant.
