Lions Club donates $5,000 to victims in Nepal

The Lions Club of Steamboat Ski Town donated $5,000 to the victims of the recent disasters in Nepal with the funds sent overseas late last week. Because the Lions Club is a volunteer organization, 100 percent of this donation will go toward relief efforts in Kathmandu.

The Lions Club has donated its financial support to numerous relief efforts following global tragedies, but this event carries a special significance for the club. The Lions Club has a twin organization in Kathmandu, Nepal, and has been fostering this relationship with the Nepalese club since 2013.

The Lions Club is currently in the process of obtaining its 501(c)(3) status, so cannot accept tax-free donations, but encourages local community members who are seeking the benefits of a tax-free donation to donate through an organization such as the American Red Cross.

The Steamboat Springs Lions Club meets at 11:30 a.m. on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month at the Egg & I, and visitors are welcome.
