Posted on June 27, 2015Another check was delivered on 6/7/15, in the amount of $2,285.00 to the Kirkland Lions Club from the YouCaring Account Fairdale Illinois Tornado Relief. The Kirkland Lions Club distributed "Cash in Hand" to those in need as soon as it was received. The Kirkland Lions Club have been excellent stewards of the donated money gathered to complete donors intent. The Kirkland Lions Club should be commended for handling and carrying out such an important task, all while showing compassion and providing personal attention to those in need. They have fulfilled the Motto of the Lions Club which is "We Serve" Thank you Kirkland Lions Club Members!
Recovery has now begun, the community has had time to realize there are additional areas of the rebuild that were not initially anticipated, nor are covered by insurance. DeKalb County is in the process of rezoning Fairdale to be in compliance with current zoning regulations for wells and septic systems. After this rezoning process, building permits can be issued with the anticipated date of July 1, 2015. It has been nearly three months since the tornado's destruction on April 9, 2015. And to these community members have been patiently waiting to rebuild -- it has been a long three months.
Many people are still wanting to help in the recovery process and monetary donations are the easiest way to get resources to those in need quickly. There are various fundraisers still being planned as future events, from lemonade stands to hair-cut-a-thons to help those in need. I have been asked by those planning these fundraisers to keep this account open allowing an easy way to get the money to the recipients easily and simply. We have decided to change the fundraising goal for this YouCaring account to $30,000 and believe this is obtainable. Donate a little -- together it all adds up to make a difference. Thank you in advance for all your help!
