I would like to give an update on the Tomball Lions Club Harvey Relief for 2017. As of the end of 2017, The Tomball Lions Club gave out $17,200 to help Harvey Victims. I want to give a special thank you for my good friend and Lion Club Sponsor Lion Pete Hildreth of Hilltop Rental in Tomball, Texas. He was the first person that gave funds and items to help Harvey Victims. He started by giving 14 cases of water. Before I left he gave me a check for $1000 to start the fund raising by our club to help Harvey Victims. After that we had the Tomball Lions Club Joe Mahan disaster relief fund and other clubs, Lions Club International Foundation (LCIF), and many individuals to bring the total to the $17,200. We distributed the funds to community organizations such as TEAM (Tomball Emergency Assistance Ministries) and many individuals.
