The Tomball Lions Club presented the check of the $250 allocation by the club to help the Community Action Teams of District 2-S2 Gulf Coast Region. The Tomball Lions Club was so blessed this year that they were able to continue providing the funds for their group. The club uses the emergency preparation kits to pass out to  the community at all of the events to show how the club talks about how lions live their motto “We Serve”.
What is the Community Action Teams of District 2-S2 Gulf Coast Region?
Community Action Teams are true LEADERS that have decided to dedicate themselves to the Restoration Outreach to the betterment of their local communities. Let’s face it, to make an Impact you must be willing to give of your time, energy, and resources. We seek collaboration with like-minded individuals, businesses, and organizations that continue to make a real difference in their local community.
Their Primary Mission is to cultivate a culture of preparedness that supports local grassroots Initiatives in the public and private sector to address the spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical needs of communities in times of unexpected crisis, hardship and poverty.
Their Primary Vision is to aim and preserve the dignity of individuals and families:
• Promote continuing education and training to individuals, schools, businesses, faith-based and community outreach organizations on how to effectively respond to regional, national and global emergencies.
• Provide ongoing resources to equip students, school districts and communities with free emergency preparation kits and training to youth and adults to help keep neighborhoods safe, healthy, and alive.
• Assist in the pre-post distribution of food, clothing, tools, equipment, and supplies for points of distribution (POD) during and after diverse emergency response situations.
