Rotary Club of Lincoln City Provides Tools to Echo Mtn Fire Victims

By DG Cindi O’Neil (adapted from a The News Guard article out of Lincoln City)

Bravo to the Rotary Club of Lincoln City! Due to formidable leadership by Rotary President Cindi Fosveit, the Club turned a D5110 allocation of $12,500 in RI Disaster Relief Funds into $32,555 to help fire victims re-tool and return to work. Dubbed the “Echo Mtn Fire Relief Re-Tool” the Club focused on individuals who lost their home, have little to no insurance, and who are struggling to continue to work effectively due to their loss of tools and equipment needed for their trade. Fifty-one people benefited and received tools to return to work.

To fund this program, Rotary Club of LC received a $12,500 grant from the RI Disaster Relief Fund, and then solicited donations of $4,150 from their own club, $3,655 from the Rotary Club of Seaside, $4,000 from the OR State Chamber, $1,000 from NW Natural, $3,500 from a Lincoln County grant, and $3,750 from Mills ACE Hardware, for a total of $32,555.
