The Roosevelt Fire Disaster Recovery Fund has distributed $321,529.56 to date, directly assisting 28 families affected by the fire as well as providing funds for the roads that serve all Hoback Ranches residents. Donations have come in from across the country, from individuals and groups, and we are grateful for them all. Total received to date is $454,881.00. The Lions of Wyoming Foundation receives and processes all contributions and then forwards them to the Pinedale Lions Club for distribution, which is determined by an eight person committee made up of community members from Bondurant, Jackson and Pinedale.
If you would like to make a donation to help support Roosevelt Fire victims, checks may be made out to the Lions of Wyoming Foundation and sent to 224 Talon Court, Cheyenne, WY 82009. Please indicate "Roosevelt Fire" in the memo line. Tax letters will be sent to all donors.
Those impacted by the Roosevelt Fire and in need of financial assistance are invited to submit an application, available at the Bondurant Post Office and online at the links provided below.
