Jackson Lions Donates to the Hawaii Wildfire Relief... YOU CAN TOO!

The Jackson Lions Club, during a recent special Board of Directors meeting, approved to send $1,000 to the Hawaii Wildfire Relief. Currently, per Lion Todd, CLF (California Lions Foundation) has already raised over $20,000.00 dollars toward this cause/relief fund.









If you would like to contribute to this fund, just click on the "DONATE" button below or thru other avenues described below. The devastating wildfires that have swept through the beautiful landscapes of Hawaii have left families and communities in distress.

As part of the California Lions Foundation's commitment to extending a helping hand in times of need, we are reaching out to you with an urgent appeal to support the victims of the Hawaiian fires. Working with Lions of Hawaii, all funds raised will be expedited to them to manage the relief and recovery efforts directly on the ground in Hawaii. 

The impact of these wildfires has been truly heart-wrenching. Homes have been destroyed, cherished memories have turned to ashes, and countless lives have been upended. The immediate and long-term needs of these families are vast, ranging from emergency shelter and basic necessities to emotional support and rebuilding their lives.

The California Lions Foundation has a long-standing tradition of coming together in times of crisis. With your support, we can make a real impact on the lives of these disaster-stricken families. No contribution is too small – every dollar counts and will be used effectively to provide the help that's desperately needed.

How to Donate: You can make your donation online through our secure website at or if you prefer to contribute by check, please make it payable to "California Lions Foundation" with "Hawaii Wildfire Relief" in the memo line, and mail it to:

Your compassion and generosity can truly make a difference. We urge you to stand with us and the victims of the Hawaii wildfires during this challenging time. Share this appeal with your friends, family, and colleagues, as collective efforts can bring about positive change.

Thank you for being a beacon of hope in times of darkness. Together, we can bring relief, support, and strength to those who need it most.


The California Lions Foundation is a fully tax exempt charitable 501(c)(3) entity.
Only designated funds raised with this appeal will be used to help Hawaii wildfire victims. No other CLF funds will be used for this cause.
