Relief available for Roosevelt Fire victims
October 12, 2018

The Pinedale Lions Club and the Bondurant Community Club are happy to report that, thanks to the generosity of many individuals and corporate donors, a first round of disbursements can be made from the Roosevelt Fire Recovery Fund and applications are now available for those affected by the Roosevelt Fire.

The Roosevelt Fire Recovery Fundraising Campaign was launched under the auspices of the Pinedale Lions Club (via the Lions of Wyoming Foundation), with support from the Bondurant Community Club. Funds have been collected via the following sites: https://www.gofundme.com/roosevelt-fire-disaster-recovery and https://www.lionsofwyomingfoundation.org/ as well as by check directly to the Lions of Wyoming Foundation. With 55 homes destroyed and many permanent residents displaced, the campaign will be ongoing; this first application period is designed to address the most urgent needs of our friends and neighbors.

The purpose of this fundraising campaign is to offer financial assistance based on need to those who experienced loss as a result of the Roosevelt Fire and to help rebuild core infrastructure for the community. The Roosevelt Fire Recovery Fund Committee has been formed to oversee the systematic, equitable and confidential distribution of funds. The Funds Committee consists of a mix of key stakeholders as well as outside non-partisan volunteers from Bondurant, Hoback Ranches, Jackson, and Pinedale, Wyoming. Guidelines and criteria for distribution have been established, and are based on best practices from other disasters. The Committee will review applications, meet with applicants as needed, and apply the guidelines and criteria in order to distribute funds. It is anticipated that there will be multiple rounds of distributions made. Checks to recipients will come from the Pinedale Lions Club where all donations are being held.

If you would like to support the Roosevelt Fire Recovery Fund, donations may be sent to the Lions of Wyoming Foundation, 224 Talon Ct., Cheyenne, WY 82009 please put "Roosevelt Fire" in the memo line. Your generosity is greatly appreciated as we work to rebuild the Hoback Ranches community.

Applications and Guidelines are available at the Bondurant Library and Post Office and online here:
