Emergency Grant Allocations
During the Pinery Fire of November 2015, Mallala, Gawler, Gilbert Valley and Balaklava Lions Clubs were involved in seeking emergency grants for approximately 100 families. These are the monetary grants given to individuals and families in cases of extreme emergency…unfortunately usually following a devastating disaster. This amounted to Approximately $300,000.
And also earlier in 2015, the Sampson Flat fire emergency grants of $53,500 for 18 families through Torrens Valley Lions Club.
It has been reported that 12 homes were lost yesterday as a result of the Yorke Peninsula Fire. I will be following up with local YP Clubs, such as Maitland, Stansbury Dalrymple and Minlaton in the next couple of days to see what help is needed.
