The Lions Club has been in Joplin since the tornado hit... Helping out and providing thousands of dollars to those in need.
This is what's left of Sandy Taylor's home...just dirt and a for sale sign, but she did find something that got swept under the bulldozer."
Her 1970's yearbook with the help of her organization.. The Lions Club.
Taylor says, "Our organization has taken funds and helped people get glasses, which is what we're about. We help people with their eyesight, food, water, clothing, everything."
This was caught on a flip cam by Lion members helping clean up Sandy's home.
Nicole Brown.... documenting their efforts.
Communications Manager for the Lions Clubs International Foundation Nicole Brown says, "Lions Club International Foundation has given $60,000.00 and Lions locally have received $80,000.00 from
Lions around the country who were sent direct donations for support."
Although affected herself, Sandy has been active in her organization.
Taylor says, "We were exhausted, emotionally traumatized, but just being a small part of helping somebody move on was so self fulfilling."
She says helping out is healing her.
Taylor says, "It's been a real privilege to serve with the group."
A group she says never leaves.
Taylor, "They don't go away...they are disaster relief."
A trait that makes her proud to be a member.
Taylor says, "I think its the heart of a Lion, we serve...."
