Helping those in need

On December 11, tornadoes hit hard in the area around Mayfield, Kentucky. While the world is turning it’s attention to the millions displaced in Ukraine, let’s not forget the 2,000 families that are displaced here close to home. 


Between now and June 30, 2022, the Ohio Lions will be collecting items to help these families get back on their feet. As victims find housing, the Lions of 43-K have a warehouse of household items to meet their needs. ASK YOUR CLUB TO FILL A PLASTIC TOTE with any of these household items. We will collect totes at convention, at Leadership Training May 7 and at state convention May 22 and taken to Millersport for transport to Kentucky. If your club has networks and means to provide larger items, like new mattresses or slightly used furniture, please contact Lion Kerry Parker (kep121@msn.com).

If your club prefers to give financially, make donations payable to Ohio Lions Foundation, with “Kentucky Lions” on the memo line. Donations can still be made through Paypal at this link: PAYPAL DONATION. Checks should be sent to Ohio Lions Foundation., 4074 Hoover Rd., Grove City, OH  43123.

Thank you to the Ohio Lions for their generosity in this. Over $25,000 directly to Kentucky Lions and $70,000+ to LCIF.  Ohio Lions really know how to step it up!

Let’s rally behind our Lions and give what we can. True Service from the Heart. 


Service from the Heart & LCIF

brought to you by Wendall August Forge

Lions around the world are finding creative ways to help raise the last $75 million toward LCIF’s Campaign 100. You can participate by buying a Wendall August Forge medallion/ornament with this year’s presidential focus – Service from the Heart.

LCIF’s Campaign 100 continues through June 30, 2022. To that end, District 13 OH2 has been authorized by LCI’s marketing and branding department to exclusively provide an Ornament sale with the International President’s Theme and image “Service from the Heart”. 100% of the net proceeds from the ornament are earmarked to LCIF from District OH2. Below is the actual ornament. Order at: www.wendellaugust.com.

Create an account on the site and place your orders. You are also able to buy as a guest, just enter LCIF or Lions Clubs into the search box, then follow the prompts.

The cost is $12.00/ per ornament, and supplies are limited! Orders must be received by June 15 to provide vendor production and timely ornament delivery.  You can also purchase an ornament at the State Convention (May 20-22) from our LCIF Committee.

Nowhere else in the world can someone obtain this unique gift, honoring IP Douglas Alexander’s year of Service from the Heart, with net proceeds benefitting LCIF.
