Hurricane Irma has completely devastated Everglades City with a 6-8 ft storm surge and damaging winds. The vast majority of residents have lost everything as a result of the storm. Homes have been completely inundated with all personal belongings destroyed and homes rendered uninhabitable. The Everglades Lions Club is desperately seeking donations to help families affected by the storm.
The needs include medicine, corrective eyeglasses, temporary living expenses and basic necessities. The Everglades City Lions Club has been helping the local community since the 1950'. We estimate that at a minimum $25,000 will be needed to meet the immediate needs of the city. We are going to to help citizens rebuild their lives and homes!
