Last April the Victoria Lions launched our COVID-19 Relief Fund campaign.  The goal was to raise money that would be used specifically to assist those people that had been directly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting economic crisis.  Thanks to the generosity of the Lions and our community, we raised $12,500.
Through our partnership with the Carver County Resilience Team, we identified charities, agencies, and schools that were directly providing support to Eastern Carver County residents most in need.  Grants for the entire $12,500 were given to support our community. Recipients included Love Inc, His House Foundation, The Humanity Alliance, Scott, Carver, Dakota Community Action Partnership, Bethesda, District 112 Foundation, Hope House Foundation, and more.  Needs supported included hunger, housing, distance learning, transportation, childcare, clothing. 
Nearly a year later, we have learned from our continued alliance with the Carver County Resilience Team that the humanitarian needs in our community are still real and still great.
In December, the Lions Foundation was fortunate to receive a gift of $5,000 from Old National Bank (thanks for all your votes!) which we have designated to the COVID-19 Relief Fund.  Due to the continued need of our community organizations, the Lions Foundation has donated an additional $2,500 to the fund.  As discussed during the last Club meeting, The Victoria Lions decided to use the $7,500 and launch Phase II of our COVID-19 Relief Fund that we hope will be matched.
If you are blessed with health and good fortune, we are asking that in this time of need, you would consider a donation to the Lions Foundation of Victoria.
