Moose Members Provide Shelter, Food and Support to Wildfire Evacuees
Wildfires continue to rage through northern California, and, as they have done when hurricanes, tornadoes and other disasters strike their local communities, the Loyal Order of Moose is there to help.
Clearlake Oaks, CA Lodge 2284 has opened its doors to the 100-150 evacuees who seek shelter there nearly every night. They are cooking meals for those and others who are displaced and need to eat. In addition to those staying inside the lodge others are in tents, trailer or RVs in the parking lot.
This massive effort is costly, and the lodge would benefit from assistance from other lodges, especially monetary help so they can continue to purchase supplies to continue to feed and house those in-need.
Our Lockport Moose Lodge's doors would also be open to help our community in the event of a tragedy. Over the next few days we will be accepting monetary donations to help our distant neighbors. Please consider donating a few dollars for this most worthy cause.
Monies collected through our efforts will be sent to the Clearlake Oaks Moose Lodge on Monday August 31st. Donations will be accepted not only from Moose members but also residents and businesses in our Lockport Community.
Attached is a local news report that highlights the efforts being made by the Moose lodge to help people in-need during the crisis.
